"A taste of summer" sunflower and lavender palette knife oil painting.

 "A taste of summer" sunflower and lavender painting
19x27cm, oil on canvas board, palette knife painting

This is a rework of one of my Garden 101 series and fresh off the easel today. At the time, I put it in my discard pile, as, although I liked the concept, the painting did not come out as expected.

I am not having a lot of success with my iris paintings at the moment, so as a change, I got this painting out and reworked it using a palette knife and fresher looking paint.
I really like it now. Quite loose and fresh looking to my eyes. Let me know what you think.

Iris season is with us

 Last Saturday saw our annual pilgrimage to 'Iris en Provence' iris nursery/farm located near Hyeres. It's quite a long drive from home but we make a day of it by taking the coast road along the riviera. It is only a small place but the different varieties of iris they have are superb. The colours are sublime. Of course I always come away with a car full of new irises, which is a bit of a hit on the wallet but well worth it. The irises I bought last year are just coming into bloom in the garden, so watch out for a new batch of iris paintings.
Here are a few photos to whet your appetite.
