Sketch of Iris iberica


For a long time I wanted to paint this species, but never able to catch it in the wild at the right time. Then, I had the chance! I did a long trip to the location of the plant, and I returned back to my studio with some sketches and the plant itself to make this first study which led to a big final painting of this marvelous Iris species.

All illustrations are painted in watercolor on Fabriano paper, 300 gsm. I still have an old batch of my favorite paper, Fabriano 5! I always work from live specimens and with scientific support from experts in the species. Plants are drawn and painted life size. Paintings will be delivered without mounts and frames, and will be sent with a certificate with your name. The prices include postage.

If you would like to have a closer look, the original paintings can be seen at Evin Art Gallery, Istanbul.

The gallery images have a subtle indication of the border to show the paper edge and to help appreciate the paper’s actual size.
