Iris


Anita Davies 2010

This canvas has been sitting around the studio for a couple of years now, with a prepped background using gesso to texture and acrylic ink to tone, it sat idle waiting for me to be inspired enough to take it further.
A few days ago I decided on iris for a subject and set about it with gesso again, mapping out with a brush, the forms I wanted to re-paint to give a fresh base for the new ink applications to shine on.

This is the result.

Any ideas on a title for the piece?

Mmmm...there is a certain soothing freshness about this...all watery and serene...mystical and new...soulful. :) Extraordinary texture and mood Anita...:)

It feels like the iris are swaying in water...peaceful and Zen-like...gorgeous effects!

THis is just beautiful. I don't know why, but I thought of the Beatles song "Octopus's Garden" when I saw it.
