Yellow Iris
Drawing: Colored pencil on drafting film

19 1/5"h x 15"w


I focus about 1/2 the time on botanical illustration in many mediums including colored pencil, oils, pen and ink, and watercolor, but my lifelong study of trees continues. These days most of my tree works consist of collage, made with recycled newspaper enhanced with many layers of watercolor. Because nature offers infinite varieties and subjects of color and shape in abundant supply, I am confident I'll never run out of subject matter.
