Iris

Last week’s Art Journal Adventure prompt was “colour gradations”.  I was greedy and decided I wanted to use all of the colours of the rainbow rather than shades of one colour for a monochromatic scheme.  That gave me the idea of drawing Iris.  I painted Iris, goddess of the rainbow, last year with mixed results and there are definite echos of that piece in my art journal illustrations – the black background, the pale hair, the sweeping curve of the body – but in a more naive style.  I jump between styles a lot.  That probably makes me a “Jack of all trades and master of none” but it also stops me getting creatively stuck and bored.

  1. So well done! The detail in the face complements the simplicity of the rest. And who doesn’t love watercolor rainbow colors!
