A friend asked for one of my iris sketches and I promised it to her before realising that it was the one done in my Moleskine sketchbook. Since I didn’t want to take out a page from the sketchbook, I offered to paint another one based on the photos and the sketch. I don’t usually paint from photos, there is something magical about being able to touch and smell the flowers while painting them, but I was glad to have an incentive for painting and enjoyed it immensely. I hope she likes it.
