Yellow Iris 3


Purple Irises is my favorite, but there are many others that are beautiful. This is my 3rd take on Yellow Irises. Wasn't sure if I should go dark or light in the background since the flowers are quite light. This is the end result.

  1. Oh my goodness, these are gorgeous. What do you mean 3rd!! So there were 2 others... but this one is 15"x23" (I consider that to be big!) ... you're a painting machine!! Do you ever sleep??!

  3. I am especially fond of the yellow ones - I don't see them much.
    Love the striping on the lower petals and also how you've used the lightest green sparingly so that we can really see the light play on the stems.

  4. Love the complementary color scheme and the overall "smiling" composition the yellow irises make. Well done, Roger!

  7. Thank you Vanten, different is both a good and a bad thing, but more good I think. =)

  8. I also prefer purple irises, but I must admit that yellow is very pretty too, and you did a wonderful painting, I like how you kept the background light, being the color of the flower so delicate.
