Purple Irises Oil Painting

purple iris

Irises are one of the most elegant of flowers, don't you think? Regardless of the color, they add a beautiful statement to the flower garden. I used the bearded iris at left for a reference for this painting. I like them for their two tone purple color with dark velvet falls. Their buds are lovely too - almost like satin.
This colorful oil painting uses thick brush strokes to define the lovely curve of the petals and buds.
