Simple, direct, bold — Purple Iris catches an eternal moment of spring in this 14 x 11 watercolor. I am especially excited about this work because it is a focal point of my newly launched digital workshop series — Step by Step Art Success — Watercolor, in which I teach glazing, a technique that many watercolorists are unfamiliar with. And yet this is the technique to use when you want powerful, pumped up color that isn't garish.
Original watercolor at Steve Henderson Fine Art; digital watercolor workshop, Step by Step Art Success also available at Steve Henderson Fine Art as a DVD or download. There is also an informational YouTube video about the digital watercolor workshop (which unfortunately cannot be viewed from mobile devices like your phone — it's a YouTube thing; but it's worth watching on your computer screen).
