Star Cluster Irises

Here's another iris pic for Tristan Alexander's potential T-shirt collection. This was a commission, one of only a few flower commissions I did. It is also one of the few where I used airbrush. The background here is wet-on-wet watercolor, and the iris is brush-painted, but the cluster of glowing stars was painted with airbrush. I tried for maximum prettiness.

"Star Cluster Irises" is watercolor and gouache on illustration board, 7" x 10", June 1990.
