Very beautiful irises Kathleen. So soft it almost looks like watercolor and ink. I like your color and shading of the leaves also.

great depth in the background! i like that you included that one dead flower head, too. it just tickles me cuz i grow bearded iris and that's one thing that's always present in a stand of these flowers. makes it much more realistic to me.:thumbsup:

Very pretty details in those petals, and I like how each flower looks so different and is at a different angle.

That crumpled one is almost a sad face, expressive of age in the face of youth!!!! :lol:
This is beautifully painted - very sympathetic, really lovely work :D

Everyone tries Irises at least once (me too!) and they are very difficult I think. This one is very very satisfying. Wonderful work.
