Re: Flower of Mystery

I have no idea what the flower is Sylvia but it is beautiful and well painted. I like the contrast between the warm reds/oranges and the cooler purples. Well done.

Re: Flower of Mystery

A beautiful flower Sylvia. I'm not sure but is a multi-flowered flower head similar to a Penstemon or even Campanula.

Re: Flower of Mystery

Beautiful colors. It looks very much like a bearded iris...the bud is the same and they are often multi-colored.

Re: Flower of Mystery

I think Jan may be right, a species of Iris.

Re: Flower of Mystery

It’s hard to tell what kind of flower it is without a little more information, stem and leaves. Lovely painting with beautiful colours.
