Iris garden

Iris flowerscape
When I started seriously doing watercolors I wanted to concentrate and  excel in one type of subject before I ventured into more complicated paintings. This was how I started painting flowers. Now you may notice that I have started on landscapes mostly having gardens . This painting Iris  flowerscape(I like this word!) was part of the painting exhibition. There are yellow  irises too in this ledge of irises.A few mistakes like the two fence  for climbing plants went out of propotion and the slabs at the left hand corner should have been straight. Well I am glad I learn from these stupid mistakes. I loved the way the iris flowers came out and overall many liked this painting too.
Please also look at my Iris painting in an earlier post which had the highest views in my blog.

Irises in water color

When I saw the photograph of Iris gardens in Japan  posted by my friend in the facebook  it was my turn to paint the next flower for my floral series.What a lovely blue!. Iris lilies are beautiful in a group as well as individual flower.The dark blue violet color is eye catching  so are the shapes of each petal. In this variety  the flower is small. Yellow flower is also a common color found in these plants . Happy to inform you this painting  and 8 other paintings posted in this blog (apple blossoms,wild tulips,paeonies,lilies ,autumn leaves etc have been selected for display at Wallframes Art gallery Kochi.
