Anemones and poppies are some of my favorite flowers to paint. Anemones come in such intense colors, they are always a delight to look at - especially in multi-colored bunches! These blue beauties were painted with all the blues on my watercolor palette: manganese, cobalt, ultramarine, Prussian, as well as all my purples, pinks and magentas. I used Indian yellow, Prussian blue and green-gold for the foliage. Green-gold by Winsor Newton makes lovely, transparent leaves and stems, so I use it often. Second and third photos show detail of left and right sides of the blue petals. Your comments are always welcome.
