French Iris

These are real French Iris, that is, I found them in France. They were growing along a wall in Burgundy and reminded me of a Van Gogh painting I had seen somewhere. They actually look bluer in this photo than I painted them. I just can't get the right colors which are more lavender and purple. I haven't mastered the photo editing "thing" yet.


  1. Really beautiful! Those blues with the yellow is lovely!

  2. The painting part can be difficult enough, but then when we can't manipulate the colors on the computer, it's a real pain. I, too, love the color palette.

  3. Beautiful iris, Sue, think this is the first floral I have seen of yours! The yellow background is the perfect contrast for these beauties.
