Now I have had a good look at them with all their textured, basic raised shapes I feel I rather like them as they are. Maybe these past few years I have seen so much 'contemporary' work I feel there is no need to put in too much botanical detail but just hint at it. DO YOU AGREE??
I am adding a close up of a small area as well as the whole work to give you a better idea of the style of work.
No:1 IRISES IN EARLY MORNING LIGHT
24" X 30" STRETCHED CANVAS
No: 2 IRISES IN BLUE LIGHT
36" X 14" STRETCHED CANVAS
I also have a smaller framed Iris painting on silk from many moons ago using gutta paint tubes. Its the only silk painting I have left. Do you think I should enter this as well?? I like the idea of just submitting the one subject.
No: 3 IRIS ON SILK
20" X 16" FRAMED AND MOUNTED
Now I have put all this together, I rather like the idea but will wait for your comments but please note I need to deliver to my pal next Tuesday for submission to the NCAS, which I recently joined and looking forward to their next monthly meeting on Chinese Art.
The auction is at the Old Bally Shoe Factory, Hall Road, Norwich , which is often used for large art events, on the 27th November viewing from 6.30 pm and a catalogue will be available in advance.
