Cummins Iris Garden

What an amazing place! So much to see and paint, it was quite overwhelming. I tried three things though, a view down the valley, a more immediate view of "stuff" with trees etc, and a closeup of an Iris flower. The Cummins' were so hospitable to us - delightful people and so passionate and knowledgeable about the Irises. I learned a lot.
Lots of "stuff" to paint

Started with a blind contour drawing so my Iris doesn't quite join up in the right places!

The big view - I made up the clouds there were none to be seen!

Im a little late with comments. I always love your plein air paintings. The long view is an especially nice landscape, and I like the other pieces, too.
