Iris again



Still very intrigued by the beauty of the shapes and patterns that nature created in this flower...

Non è facile dipingere gli iris. Tu l'hai fatto molto bene. Brava. Elvi

Much better this one than the former. I guess you have used more ultramarine blue instead of cobalt, am I right? Very nice blog, I'll follow you.

Blagga, it's beautiful, there's volume and high accuracy in the first. A bit like a botanical plate. We feel your interest in these little flowers.

Grazie, Elvi, mi piace dipingere fiori.

I'm glad to welcome you here, Albert! I know what mean, the first sketch is too blue. I did that with pan colors, and didn't have much time to mix them, so I used mostly ultramarine. In these two, painted inside with tube colors, I mixed Ultramarine and Quin. Violet (Alizarin) which produced hues much closer to the original. Thank you for visiting!

Lydie and Judy, I know you both love flowers and I'm glad you liked these.

Lovely irises. I like how you show your sketches and final painting in all of your posts.
