The floral series of Vincent van Gogh's Irises paintings were inspired by the gardens of the asylum he was admitted to, and the nature that surrounded him every day during his isolation. Each flower has its unique movement and shape that van Gogh tried to portray using different patterns of brush strokes.
In this paint by number, his gradients of blue and violet bring the petals to life with green tones to match the leaves. Only one white Iris stands in the middle with a bush of poppies in shades of orange behind. Irises symbolize wisdom and courage and the white one represents pureness and innocence. Being alone in this painting emphasizes this meaning. Size 15 x 20 inches.
