Iris


An iris that I painted today. Even though they look easy to paint, I find them a little difficult.. As you know from my recent whining I'm without my own computer. It's in the hospital and hope it survives the surgery. !!

  2. I have had extreme difficulty in painting iris so I admire anyone that can paint them. Yours are lovely. Excellent watercolor skills showing here.

  3. I think both of these are lovely. There are so many parts to the iris, it's hard to get it right without making it stiff - and you kept your paintings loose. Nice work (hope the computer returns in tiptop shape).

  4. My mom has painted many flowers in watercolor for many, many years. I have one of her irises here. (shhh. I love this one best though!)
    Very vibrant. Hope you get well soon.

  7. They are beautiful I agree I would think they are very difficult because each flower is a personality of its own. Well done for such a great work

  8. I think Iris are very difficult, I don't know why. I keep telling myself they are just shapes! Your's turned out very nicely. My magnolia tree is blooming and I'm finding that the blooms don't even last a day in the FL sunshine. Boo, hoo. I wonder what would happen if I picked one and brought it in to paint? Have you ever tried it?

  9. These really are superb--just what I want to do when I sit down to paint irises! (but haven't managed yet). Gorgeous shapes and colors, with that characteristic paperiness of irises. Really beautiful !!!!
