Van Gogh's Irises (Part 2)
Oh how I love Van Gogh and the Picassos really made me proud with this piece. Irises are not just difficult flowers to draw they are also turned this way and that in this painting... naturally because it is a field and our old friend perspective also comes into play because the relative size of the flowers and the level of detail changes as your eye moves up the painting to give the impression of depth and distance. All these complexities were not lost on my little Picassos :)
