WDE 12th March; More irises joining the Van Gogh party

I wanted to try the van Gogh style of painting irises as well, since my time is limited (work just takes to much time) I only did a couple of ATCs using Inktense pencils.



They were fun to do, but I'm not that sure that they are much Van Gogh.

They're really nice Mona - the first particularly has a lot of VG in it!

Skies with swirls and dancing irises are definitely Van Gogh 'ish' I think.
Nice flowers!

Nice to see you here again, Mona. The starry starry sky configuration and the colors are certainly van Gogh-ish. They are beautiful paintings by any standard.

Thank you, you are so kind

I made the blue one first, looking at one of the flowers in the reference. The yellow one was done from imagination. This challenge sure have started a painting-with-bold-colors craving, maybe I will get some painting done this weekend anyway.

Very very nice and van Gogh-ish, Mona, particularly I like the warm toned one on the right. You added the swirling lines he was so fond of, too.

Bright and very van Gogh-like, Mona! You have kept the integrity of his style especially with the swirls! I Checked out your website - wonderful, beautiful work!
