"Pondside Irises" 8 x 10, oil

These irises were painted en plein air at the Van Dusen Botanical Gardens, where I did much squinting in the full sun. I worked at straight forward brush strokes, and, once again, leaving the stroke once it was down on the canvas. The result is an impasto effect with thick, sculptured paint. Very tactile.
