Green Anemone by bluecnidaria Green Anemone by bluecnidaria
Medium: Real Old Fashioned Watercolour
Arches cold press 140lb 9x12
Prints are available (proper ones) - send me a note.

Latin Name: Anthopleura xanthogrammica

There are places in the world where the palm trees bend under tropical breezes, where the ocean glows with a radiant turquoise and the water is as warm as bath water. There are places where the sun bakes the land, the air swirls over dry rock and you never need worry about an umbrella. There are also places in the world that pass through a most glorious array of fall colour and then disappear under a blanket of the most exquisite glittering white and even the places that are plunged into a deep freeze in winter are warmer than here in the summer. But I will forgo tropical warmth, and the beauty of the seasons and take the rain, the mountains, the constant cool temperatures, the damp green world that Iíve found here. Where the power of the wind leaves me feeling small and awestruck.. Where mountains meet sea in a rocky green jumble filled with wildlife and fish. Where colour lives in a tiny puddle of water left by the falling tide.

I liked the treatment here. Though i love b/w drawings ( the tower house is also good), as is evident from my gallery and my favs, this one is tempting.
And hey, why not do a series of this? Will come out nice, i'm sure.

Keep drawing, keep enjoying.
