I got this original Watercolor from my daughter-in-law as a Christmas present. What do you think? Can you figure out the cultivar that was the "model" for this work? My daughter-in-law is the artist and she graduated from Norwich University of The Arts (this is in the UK).

Let me know what you think and what you think the cultivar is! Smiling

What a lovely daughter-in-law to give you such a gift! Lovey dubby

I haven't a clue as to the iris... that dark beard might be a clue to some, though.
It's daylily season!

It is beautiful! It has the color similar to IB Honey Glazed pictured below but the beard in the watercolor is too dark for this little iris.

BTW

size: this is 13" x 10"

medium: Watercolor

She did this from a picture and embellished the surrounding vegetation. She says she wants to sit in my garden and paint during the next bloom season. She plans on doing both watercolor and oil paintings(if she does I will post pictures of her at work). I am also hoping to get another artist (one of my parents friends who I have known since 1972) to come at the same time and also paint in the garden.

Beautiful painting. Ginger Ice came to mind, but the beard isn't dark on that one.
