Irises are Easy

This is an old post I decided to dredge up for this week's Paint Party Friday and Sunday Sketches.  Hope you don't mind!!!


During the long weekend, I finally got my fingers in the dirt of my garden.  I was reminded of all the beautiful gardens I've had in my life and it started me on another flower painting week...

Watercolour on paper 6x9

and because I was so successful at depicting the flower of my choice,  I did a second, larger painting:

Watercolour on paper 9 x 11.5

And another one...
Watercolour on canvas paper 9 x 12

Can't wait until things are blooming & I can paint from life instead of memory.

Have a great weekend!

  16. It's a great piece to start, but the addition of the frame takes it to another level. I think it takes a great eye to find the right frame and you clearly have it!

  19. Anne, you have got iris painting down pat! Such beautiful art works. I wish it were time for the irises to bloom here. I love springtime. I also love painting flowers, although I've never tried a field of irises. Thanks for the encouraging words on my blog.
