Double Iris original painting by Polly Jones
12" by 24" original oil painting on gallery wrapped stretched canvas. This was painted a while back but never got posted somehow. SOLD
This painting has a lot of energy owing to the use of brushwork to carve out the forms and it's intense color. I've used the blue and violet background fabric because of the swirling field it creates and a vintage Vera scarf of wild oranges and yellows to contrast with the green glass vase. Usually I paint irises in a more serene atmosphere but liked immersing their forms in a vibrant setting this time.
