Anemones Paintings in Progress

Anemones Painting in Progress
10 x 8 Oil on Panel

Before we had our first frost, I picked anemones from the garden and set up arrangements to photograph for paintings.  This is the first one I have started.  To my chagrin, I started with a taupe background and then realized that I wasn't going to be able to get a true white.  I think I can make it work if I build up successive layers of white paint.

Sketch for Anemones
So, for the the next painting of anemones, I started on a white background and drew a sketch in charcoal then fixed it.  I hope to begin work on this painting this week.  It's larger.  Anemones are actually quite tall.
