Queen of all colors

2013-02-03_Anemone.BlackBlack-eyed anemones, I like to call them. Here is the picture that guided this etegami… a blue black anemone.

I relied on sumi ink for the outline and the center details, and used some very diluted black gansai for shading.

Full quotation, from Auguste Renoir:  “I’ve been 40 years discovering that the queen of all colors was black.”
