The Iris

This painting of a purple Iris is done in soft Pastel on black Stonehedge paper.

I also did this painting a few years ago but would like to share it with my followers and wish all mothers a Happy Mothers Day.

I love working in Pastel and must get back at it. Although I am not as detailed I still like its empressionistic manner.

The other thing I love about Pastel is the brillant pure pigment you can put on the paper!!!!


  1. This is lovely, I like the effect with the dark background.

  2. Hi neighbor! I was playing around on my blog and happened to hit the "next blog" button at the top of the window and there you were! My neighbor! Thought i would say hi, and tell you i like your art work very much. I am also a watercolor painter but that is all. I've tried other mediums but return to watercolor all the time. Your pastel is beautiful!
    By for now. Ross

  6. I also love to use pastel, and yes I agree that the impressionists do influence me in my work. i do have to say though that the black paper makes it a strong piece of art. Keep up the good work!
