anemone bouquet

Spring is coming, I have the proof in my garden - the anemone's are just starting to flower - super excited as I planted around 50 of them this year, with 100 ranunculus to follow up. Can't wait to have these beautiful, bright flowers all around the house in a few weeks. Right now I am having to make do with the daffodils and jonquils. yep. I'm suffering. after a walk around my garden, I couldn't wait to start drawing. The result was this anemone/windflower bouquet (these don't come out in my garden until summer), I love their shape. Another feather on this one, too - I am loving drawing these at the moment. would've liked to use blue/green tones for the leaves on this, but had to work with what I had - I am awaiting my final order of markers & when this arrives, I'll have all the colours (I think) I need. I have chosen more muted/pastel tones in this order as they seem to work best for the soft, watercolour look that I like.
Some of the bulbs that are out in my garden right now.

  1. I love the way you sketch, watercolour(I think) your flowers and then add the tangles. Beautiful xx

    1. Hi, Penny. Thanks so much :)I first draw in my design with a micron pen, then if I am adding colour, use promarkers or pencil to colour in. I have been very hung up on experimenting with my promarkers to get a watercolour look (lots of working with the blender pen) and I love them, but still have a lot to learn about controlling the bleed.
