White Ice Iris painting in oils

I still haven't got around to cataloguing my paintings so far, so not sure which number I am up to.

The next two paintings are of white bearded irises, which is one of my favourite flowers. It is very majestic when it blooms.

Loose and Lively Iris daily paintings

Here are two of my plein aire iris paintings. These were painted end of March/beginning of April. I'm falling a bit behind again with my postings.
Loose and lively irises 1- Garden series daily painting by Marion Hedger

Loose and lively irises 2- Garden series daily painting by Marion Hedger
Oil on board (MDF), 27x22cm (approx11"x9")
It's such a lovely time of year when the irises start appearing in the garden. It's a sure sign things are warming up. The vivid blue of these irises really gives the garden a lift, when the daffodils and tulips have finished flowering and before other plants decide to make an appearance.
I have another two irises to post tomorrow.

These little paintings make a lovely set all together. I really enjoyed the freedom of using the palette knives, although they also presented some of their own challengs. This little project has given me the impetus to try another set only larger.

Provence Landscape Knife Painting #4 in oils


Impressionistic Provence Landscape Knife Painting #4
Oil painting by Marion Hedger
Oil on board, 20x15cm (8"x6")
 THIS PAINTING IS NOW SOLD
The fourth in the set of four small landscapes featuring the scenery of Provence, France and showing the vinyards, fields and distant mountains.

Here is a close-up of the knife work which is a mini abstract in itself.

The little gem is painted from some of my photos taken on a trip to the lavender and sunflower fields last year and is a compilation from serveral photos. I wanted a loose lively feel to these small landscapes to show the brilliant colours before the mid-day sun bleached out all the colours.
