IRISES IN SUNSHINE – WATERCOLOUR PAINTING

P1100312(1)

Well, the planet’s turned its tilt and summer’s on its way so I’m into flowers again. I had these images of irises in my garden which I took last year. I find them a very fussy flower and needed someway to depict them. By pushing hard light behind them I was able to focus on shapes and reduced the intricate patterns. I was pleased with the early washes which mainly remain in the background, but in order to retain these washes the arrangement of the budding flowers was a bit compromised and I needed them for linkage, so couldn’t leave them out.

Well I’m on with another floral and the sun’s come out, so let’s see what happens .

  1. I like the somewhat “blurred” ones in the back juxtaposed with the crisp edged leaves and blooms in front, really increases the depth in this. Iris’s are so captivating and you’ve captured these beautifully.
