On the weekend I bought an iris to plant in my garden. I love irises but have never grown them, so it was about time I bought one!

It was already in bloom, so before I transplanted it, I just had to paint it. Mixing purples is so enjoyable – blue, red and violet and letting them flow on the page.

There! Impulse satisfied. Transplanting can begin, and I’ll have even more irises to paint next spring!
