Vibrant Irises

Acrylic on Canvas Board

I do love irises. The flower is like a wonderful ballgown from Strictly Come Dancing. I am never disappointed when I paint or draw irises - they seem to encourage one to paint with expression and gay abandon. Whether white or colourful, they will hold your attention throughout the creative process. I used a series of big round acrylic brushes to paint them and the colours evolved as I was painting. One does not always need to be so representational.
