In addition to the unusual colour, you have captured the velvety texture of the petals very skilfully. Lovely!

Good job! Irises are such works of art in themselves. :D

The Iris is a difficult flower to paint (at least for me) and you have done an excellent job !!

I don't think this was intentional, but I'm getting Diamonds and Rust. . . or rust in blossom. . . :cool: Probably not what you intended, but what the heck. . . Lovey rendering.

Thanks Anna , hope all is well with you :)

Mr DA, thank you , I like the "diamonds and rust" but no I wasn't thinking that. The Iris looks like flowers dancing in the wind and I just like that colour :D

A superb paintings with a palette and "sfumature" (shades, nuances?) I really love!

Thanks Byron, maybe we are all thinking of spring :)

Caesar, thank you too and I'm happy that you gave a translation for "sfumature" :D

The philosopher Neil Young said, "Rust Never Sleeps". He never mentioned that an image of a rusty iris would grab one by the eyes.
So very well done.
