Poppies and Irises

I love to paint flowers, but my picture doesn't hold a candle to the real poppies and irises in this garden on King Street East. I saw them this morning when I was out for a walk. They were just stunning! I stood on the sidewalk to do the pencil sketch. Later I did the ink version and coloured it at home. I'd like to try this one in watercolour sometime. I think it would be easier to reproduce the colours with paint than with markers.
