For still life Van Gogh “Irises” characteristic contrast image of yellow and blue, their special coloristic combination. In irises soft rounded shape, partly echoing with smooth blurred outlines of the vase. The image resembles a wavy colorful irises flow of color that recreates the atmosphere dynamics, overflow, transfusion coloristic power of the web. At the same time comes the impression of fragility, lightness, “porosity” picture.
Background, drawing vases and table surface are drawn with an artist of warm, soft colors. The background of the picture is filled with a single color without too much of detail and ornamentation. At the same time the true strength of color, its light-filled warm, permeating many things of the world and giving air to the visibility and color. Using shades of yellow builds special colorful rhythm builds the reality of harmony and regular features. The color selection is different richness, openness, without crushing the many hues. The author gives preference to force black contour delineation in bright blue petals, fresh leaves of iris in a vase.
Particularly well developed picture of the iris flower. Strokes white draw in detail depth and expression to the shadows, volume and tenderness complex inflorescences. The predominance of blue hues in the color image is not of a total character. Rather, we can say that the blue irises softened tonally different combinations of ocher, yellow and blue.
Writing figure vase slightly shifted to the right, with similar artistic solution backed up by redundant “liveliness” and pomp drawing bouquet on the left side of the web. Far monochrome plan has a local solution and colored with yellow color that looks pretty simple, ascetic, coloristic monosyllables.
