I love this painting. The colors are vibrant, the brush strokes are pretty and the subject is my favorite.
I have been on an iris kick apparently. I keep painting what is basically the same iris. It started with a photo from a painting group I am in and I think I have painted it four or five times. I’ve used paint brushes and palette knives and mixtures of both so they are all a little different. I am enjoying experimenting with purples and blues. Anyhow, here is another iris!
This Iris was painted for Challenge #7, Let’s Paint New Mexico. The photograph that inspired my iris painting was taken in Jemez, New Mexico. I am loving the purples.
This is version number 4 of 5. Long story. I painted lots of these and ready to move on. This painting is 16 x 20 inches, oil on canvas.
I can not wait to start seeing blooms!
I am itchin’ for summer and miss see 8ng hollyhock blooms. Thought I would paint some.
This painting was inspired by Nancy Medina. I get access to a lesson every month for a year from her. I am really enjoying it so far. She is a serious flower lover. Of course I was excited that the first one was sunflowers, but lesson two was peonies and those are pretty fun. When I get the hang of those, I hope to post some!
