Today I painted my favorite flowers — bearded irises —using a new medium!
Watercolor ink is a medium I’ve been LOVING experimenting with. It blooms explosively and has a rich, bold, and vibrant color. And I thought a bunch of multicolor bearded irises would be the best flower to show them off.
Maybe it’s a medium YOU might want to try!
