This painting was inspired by a similar format by Elizabeth Blackadder. I had these beautiful irises in my garden this spring. I didn't want to paint a profile of individual blooms and elected to put them together in this large watercolor.
Watercolor allows for the translucency and delicate light passages through the irises standards. This is contrasted with the velvet shine of the falls.
This is a large painting 15" x 22" and would be a challenge to ship.
