    This is the final stage of the little bouquet, lots of lovely blue delphinium, just a tiny spur of the flower to place behind the anemone to give fullness and balance but there is a surprise at the end to revisit past lessons. I do hope you enjoy this challenge. best Billy

    Part two of my little bouquet is a revisit to a favourite of mine the Japanese anemone; it is a white one this time so the secret is all in the shadows. I think that trying to paint white flowers really got me hooked on Botanical painting. My dear mother in law Edith Cook, painted the most beautiful white lilies which caught my eye one day at their house in Lincolnshire, then I saw the exquisite flowers of Pandora Sellars in a Shirley Sherwood book and together these two lady's work pushed me towards trying to paint the perfect petal shadow. I do hope you have fun adding our first little flower. best wishes Billy
