"Iris" 8'x 8"

Oil on Hardboard 8"x 8"

I like trying different approaches to lighting when setting up still lifes. This painting has two light sources. One is the defused light from a window on the right and the other is from underneath. This lighting lends itself to lost edges and long shadows both of which I like.

M~ The under lighting adds a dramatic element which enhances your subject in such an interesting way. Well done(again)!

I really love the composition! It somehow gives the flowers a real personality - like Van Gogh's animated irises. It's as if they're reaching out to the viewer. Brilliant!
