Iris Studies Continued

Irises and Daisies/ oil on board/ 8 x 10/ revised

I am working on large single iris watercolor paintings. Whenever I am working on large watercolors, I am too tired to post. This little oil is a break from the large pieces. While in watercolor I am working on the glow and the shine and the "feeling" of the iris's beauty. In oil, I am working on choppy brushwork and impressionistic colors. This particular painting has been painted over a failed floral. Some of the yellows and oranges peeking out are from the previous painting.  My garden has moved on. The peonies and poppies are presently beautiful...and the weeds are reappearing..sigh...
