Violet Iris

Violet Iris                    oil                 8" x 6"
It's Iris time- and this first little painting is about the very close values between the violets and greens in the painting. I created a pattern of lighter leaves and background to contrast with the flowers. And, the greens are generally grayer in color to allow the blues and violets to stand out.

Pin It
