Iris

Over the Xmas and New Year holiday period my garden (the one my wife does most of the work in) has become a theme/inspiration for my drawing and printmaking. These three monoprints are examples of the work I have been doing.

Iris. Monoprints. Each image 18cms x 9cms in size.
Prompted by me and my interest in the work of Van Gogh my wife planted irises in the garden near my studio. We do have some purple iris but other colours as well.
I like the fluid linear quality of the flower petals and the way the flowers and their stems reach out and upward from the bulk of the foliage.
