C&C welcome!

Re: Purple Irises

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

Re: Purple Irises

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.

Re: Purple Irises

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