Iris - Limited Edition Print
This is a reproduction print of a painting of the legendary Iris Apfel, an American business woman, interior designer and fashion icon. Iris is now in her late nineties and she is still such an inspirational character. She is full of life and positivity. I am often drawn to paint powerful icons, particularly when I’m in need of some motivation. In order to achieve this loose, soft effect, I painted Iris directly on the paper without any preliminary pencil drawing (I didn’t draw the outline first and then start painting, I just painted). This is my favourite way to work as it allows the painting to evolve and come to life as I apply the pigment. It’s also a really exciting way to work as you never quite know what the finished painting will look like! I still have the original of this painting in my studio.
There are only 100 of these limited edition fine art prints in existence. Each print is signed, numbered and delivered with a certificate of authenticity from the Copperhouse Gallery in Dublin. Prints can be ordered framed or unframed. The unframed print is 16x12” and framed its 20x16”. Framed prints are delivered in my signature off white frame with double off white mount under glass and shipping is free within Ireland.
