I just love the beautiful intense colour and vivid green frilly collars of these lovely anemones. They are so special. I just can’t stop painting them – each time slightly varying the style that I use. Tried to “mess this one up” a bit and think I succeeded! I find it quite tricky to try and get that lovely intense purple, but at the same time keeping it transparent, in the way that the flower manages to do so effortlessly!
