These wild irises have had texture before, but this is a more detailed and 'grungy' texture. Orton technique applied at reduced opacity. Texture by Boccacino.

I remember previous post with these Irises. There are beautiful. I'm thinking what this image reminds me or better to say if it is similar to something I know...hmm... now I know! It's like painted on a tin plate which got rust lately :D Very artistic. I like it. Grunge is IN nowadays ;)

In Japan iris is a lady-like flower, an artistic flower. My husband and I are very much in love with what is called Japanese iris and June is the month when they grow most beautifully. Your interpretation of this wild iris reminds me of the <floating world> in Japanese ukiyo-e.

A beautiful framing and the textures are so appropriate to the flowers...luscious complementary colors !!!!
I like the slight softening given by the Orton effect !

Scott F. Schilling from San Martin, United States

This is fantastic color and I think it is appealing to me because the texture contains similar color to the flower - very flowing and smooth with the mix of colors! Great work!
