These are beautiful cerise pink irises. They are slightly back lit, which shows a wide array of tones as the light travels through the petals. Irises are one of my favourite flowers to paint, due to the endless variations of shape the petals give as they open, and as they age.
The irises are painted in acrylics using a detailed impressionistic style.This involves building up the colours in layers, using smaller and smaller dabs of overlapping paint. The final result gives rich and realistic colours.
