Amethyst Iris

   Watch Promo

One of my favorite flowers to paint – iris with stripes on the petals, which make this flower even more interesting. In this tutorial I will show you how I tackle a flower like this. We will use complementary colors: purple and yellow to create a rich striking color composition. The beauty of the flower is highlighted by the dazzling light shining through the petals. You will see how to achieve this glowing effect. This is a project suitable for those of you who would like to practice wet on wet technique, because we will use it here a lot. It's a completely self-paced course.

You will learn:
  • how to paint vibrant purple iris
  • how to paint the background using wet on wet technique
  • how to capture the light on the petals
  • how to create three dimentional looking petals
  • how to paint intricate stripe pattern on iris petals

I'm Chris and I'm very happy to welcome you here! I'm a self-taught watercolorist based in Poznań, Poland working full-time as an artist. I've been painting with watercolors since 2012 and in 2019 I launched my Online Watercolor School.

I like to paint in a realistic style. I love bright, pure colors to make my works intense, colorful and full of positive energy. The main theme of my paintings is flowers and birds, because I am amazed by the diversity and richness of their shapes and colors.
