Refiner's Fire

This is the Refiner's Fire Iris. I painted for a friends birthday because she just loves irises. 8x10 on Canson paper using Daniel Smith watercolors. I'm happy with how the colors turned out.

Now this is one of the most beautifully floral paintings I've seen in a long time. Excellent work, Jan!

Re: Refiner's Fire

You have painted a gorgeous flower. I especially like your work in the delicate upper portion and petals of the flower.

Re: Refiner's Fire

Thank you all so much for the kind words. It seems easier to paint something like this when you know it's for a cherished friend.
