In "Still Life with Irises," we see a bunch of deep blue and purple irises standing tall and wild in a simple vase. The background is a warm yellow that makes the deep blues and purples of the flowers really stand out. Van Gogh uses his thick brush strokes to give life and texture to the petals and leaves. It's like he's celebrating the natural beauty of these flowers, showing us how even in a vase, they have a life and energy of their own.
