May Purples

Alla prima on 18" x 24" gallery style cradled panel. For a show I'll be participating in this August, though I'm tempted to keep it.

Re: May Purples

Really nice! That purple is just luscious. And I bet it's even nicer in person, given the size. Best wishes on the show!

Re: May Purples

I like your use of blue and violet shades to capture shadow areas. It's a very happy painting.

Thank you all for your kind remarks.

Alexandre, they are irises, actually.

Re: May Purples

Very nice! Great composition. (I have these irises in my garden, but the slugs like them too much, so they rarely bloom! )

Re: May Purples

Thank you, Ochre. I have heard putting little bowls of beer around the garden will attract the slugs to them and they drown in the beer. And they die happy.

Re: May Purples

Thank you Harry and Jon.

I'm working on a 12" x 12" of some orange day lilies now. I'm finding it more of a challenge to do smaller paintings, unless they are of a close-up image....even more than these. I'll post it when I've got it to the point that I'm happier with it.
