30 Paintings in 30 Days - Day 6 - Purple Iris

Today is Day 6 of the "30 Paintings in 30 Days" challenge. My theme is flowers and this is 5 x 5 inches. I took this photo at the Presby Iris Garden in Montclair, NJ last year. You can view the other artwork submitted for day 6 of the challenge on Leslie Saeta's blog here:

I need to keep up with the other sketches/paintings I am also doing. This was done down by the bay facing Fire Island in the distance.


  1. You've captured the colours beautifully Joan! I'm so impressed that you are doing more than one painting a day - but then, you often do! You're amazing!

  2. Gorgeous Iris painting,really love the color and composition! Wonderful feeling of distance with your clouds, it is beautiful!

  3. Gorgeous iris! The landscape/seascape is delightful and shows great distance. :)

  4. Thanks, Wendy. These are small...just 5 inches by 5 inches.

    Celia, thanks so much! I love irises.

    Thanks, Jo. I couldn't resise doing a yellowish sky.

  5. The iris is stunning, love the colour. They are glorious flowers. The landscape/seascape is stunning as well.
