Iris...



Deze irissen stonden eerst in mijn voortuin, maar daar deden ze het niet zo goed. Ik heb ze toen uitgegraven en aan vrienden gegeven een jaar geleden. En daar doen ze het geweldig!

These irises used to grow in my front garden, but they did not do very well there. So I dug them up and gave them to friends a year ago. And there they are thriving!

Sissel said...

Nice irises. I like the delicate blue tones.

John Simlett said...

So delicate as they whisper to each other. Do you think they are talking Dutch?

Wonderful picture.

Stupendi questi iris. Elvi

Judy said...

Kathryn, thank you, I am happy you like them!

Dankje Renate, weetje dat ik deze bijna niet geplaatst had? :) We zijn niet goed in het beoordelen van eigen werk.

Ashok, thank you!!

Thank you Jenny, I wish we were living closer to eachother. I'd come paint with you!

Thank you Sissel! There were all kind of blues and purples in there.

Hi John! Well, I think they must be speaking IRISH! :) Thank you!

Grazie mille Elvi!

You made them come alive on paper though! I love the background hinting of light reflecting off green leaves.

You have captured them beautifully, Judy. Forever young in paint ! xx

Jose Sánchez said...

delicada acuarela, se nota que sientes pasion por las flores.
enhorabuena y un saludo.

Sonia Aguiar said...

Judy, dos flores muy hermosas. Te felicito. ¡Un abrazo!

Anns Art said...

Lovely painting Judy. Isn't it typical how flowers will grow well somewhere else...that's happened to us in the past, just typical!

Susan said...

I love irises and yours are wonderful!

Judy said...

Sadami, Marja, Sandra, thank you so much. Sorry if I don't answer all of you individually.

Blaga, backgrounds continue to be hard for me, so it is all experimenting. But I like this one too.

Thanks Pat!

Jose, Sonia, muchas gracias!

Hi Ann, yes typical! My front garden is facing north, so that may have been the problem. Now they are in a warm south facing garden (that is, when the summer will finally arrive). :)

Thank you so much, Susan!

The irises are lovely Judy.

Rita Vaselli said...

Hello Judy, the African heat with a lot of (family)work have kept me away from a PC ... I admire your Iris tonight, beautiful work loose, spontaneous, with subtle colors!

Maga Fabler said...

You catch the irises color absolutely great! They are so real and still in your style. Awesome work, Judy.

Vandy said...

Really beautiful irises. Fresh and lovely style.

JANE MINTER said...

lvely judy ..beautfiful colours

Judy said...

Tina, Feli, Peonia, Karen, Rita, Maga, Vandy, Jane, THANK YOU!

Irina said...

I would like so much to see the witchcraft of this painting making. Youtube video, maybe?
You are doing grrrreat.

Elizabeth Rose Stanton said...

Gorgeous!

Judy said...

Irina, it is not difficult. First I painted the background with sapgreen, and while still wet, I painted around the flowers with yellow. I like how yellow pushes other colours aside, I use this trick also in the stems. And then I splattered clean water over it.

Thank you Elizabeth!
