Iris variation 1


Thought I mix things up by painting an Iris, and I chose a flower with a color combination that I never done before, and I am surprised that I like it.

    1. Thanks Michelle. Am so inspired right now, too bad the day hasn't got more hours.

  2. Yes, these are different colors than previous Irises (I looked at some older ones to compare). I like this new color combo - very fresh and bright. The yellower greens in the background feel new too, and they compliment that aqua color in the flower. Very nice Roger!!!

    1. Thanks Karen. I try to grow, to try new things out, sometimes it baby steps, other times so much that I am not sure I will pull it together.

  3. Moi aussi je l'aime beaucoup cet iris... des fleurs que j'ai photographier hier dans mon jardin... J'aime les voir s'intégrer dans mes peintures parfois...
    J'adore la manière que vos pétales tournent avec les couleurs... Comment dire ?... C'est comme lorsqu'on met du chocolat en poudre au fond d'une tasse, on verse doucement le lait tout en remuant avec une cuillère. Votre iris me fait penser à la vision de ce mélange en train de se faire... Tout en mouvement gracieux.
    gros bisous

    1. Thank you Martine. Always nice to translate what you write, you put a smile on my face.
      Thanks for the Iris photos, I will try to make them justice.

      Iris doesn't bloom here yet, but I hope I will be able to get more reference photos this year. Last year I didn't know that I would need more than I took.
      Feel free to send more, I can never get too many. =)

      Hug!
