Bronze Iris - Oil painting

Bronze Beauty
Oil on box canvas
by Marion Hedger
This is on my easel at the moment. Not sure if it is finished so need to look with fresh eyes tomorrow.
Here, in Provence, Irises are king at this time of year. This is one that I planted a couple of years ago from a small rhizome. It looks wonderful in real life with a beautiful colour that changes from almost black through to a red purple and a red bronze with orange highlights depending on the light. I have tried to capture some of that colour and I really enjoyed painting it.
