I’ve been sloshing pink, purple, blue and red around in the lovely square of spring sunshine coming through the window.

The light is failing now but here’s a camera pic anyway to show the finished thing.

I did promise you last Wednesday that I would show you my ‘proper’ anemone painting, so being a woman of my word here is the still life that I set up and have been painting for the last three days.

I really like putting together a mix of stripes, florals and pattern, and keeping it all blue and white helps tone down the contrast.

One of my favourite parts of doing a painting is the fun that follows the hard work – I worked hard at getting the under painting on the teacup just right tonally – then it was fun to layer on the pattern and watch the whole thing jump to life.
