Iris in oil

This painting was finished in May, but it took a while before I took a photograph from it. It was done in oil paint, which I like to use for flower painting. A bit different is this painting though. I tend to make softer paintings, but this one has a lot of movement in it.
I made it after working on a larger soft painting of another iris, and wanted to make up all the paint that was left on the palette. Maybe that explains the difference?

Yes, it is very dynamic, I love the beautiful colours - purple and yellow are superb contrasts.
