Dear painting perfectionists, here is a shiny anemone to keep you busy. I love the underside of flowers and hope you do too. Here the skill is in jumping and saving the light on multiple petals.
The flower has been painted 2.5x actual size to give you the opportunity to enjoy the plush colours and fabulous washes. There are mixes galore and I advise taking notes but once you get the wind beneath your wings you will be confident to mix colours as you go. I aim to return to this to make a composition but it could easily be a standalone piece for your portfolio or watercolour sketchbook.
Jump in and give it a go.
Sunshine and rainbows, Billy x
