Yes, it's another iris. But I think I actually made some progress on this one by focussing on values. Darks went in first and they stayed dark. I didn't get all discombobulated by color choices-- I seem to do better like that. Now I'll have to paint a few more-- Meanwhile, I am painting another 16x20, tulips. Hoping to finish it today.


  1. Diane,
    Love your Iris paintings! Nice job!

  2. I am LOVING these irises! (I tried them once and it was dismal. But I'll try them again someday...) I'm adding you to my blogroll so I can visit you again soon. Would you like to trade links? Cheers, J.

  3. Diane, these are lovely, the light in the flower petals and highlight on the glass and water are really great.
