Irises - a souvenir from Monet's garden-Xpost from Pastels

Hi all, I haven't posted for a while, this time of year is always soo busy. This weekend I had to paint though, I was getting itchy...I was looking at some of the photos I took during my visit to Monet's garden in Giverny this summer. Late afternoon and such a glorious light shining on - and through those beautiful petals.

Irises

Soft pastels (mainly Giraults and Terry Ludwig) on Olive AS Colourfix board
24x38 cm

Thank you, Lil! I pushed the colours just a bit to make the flowers look more vibrant.

The light through the white of the Irises is translucent. Just lovely. All your colors are spectacular and the varied green background is just right with the whites and purples. Excellent painting.
