Another assignment for CSUMB's Science Illustration Graduate Program: this time it's a botanical field guide/poster page.
I really wanted to do irises, and I had a blast hunting around my town (Monterey, CA) taking pictures of all the different types of iris I could find (in city hall, neighbor's gardens, etc...). I found about 7 different types (in various shapes and colors), but did not have the time to draw them all, so here I have some of the 3 most common ones that I could identify:
The Douglas Iris (Iris douglasiana
) native to California, Sweet Iris (Iris pallida
) native to Croatia, and African Iris (Dietes bicolor
) native to South Africa.
If I have the time, I would love to make another page with the rest of the iris types I found!
