3 new miniature watercolour paintings – Anemones

Posted by Moshe Mikanovsky

I just finish these 3 new watercolours, which I am going to submit to a show of miniature paintings. I grew up on the stories in Israel of wild anemones growing everywhere and people picking them, while during my childhood (till these days) the anemones were already protected flowers and were not allowed to be picked. The Hebrew names for the anemone is “Kalanit”, which I named one of the paintings.

These are all 4″x5″, painted on watercolours paper, mounted on stretched canvases. I then sprayed them with Krylon UV resistence glossy acrylic coating to protect them.

  1. They are gorgeous!!!! I want some!!! We’ll talk.

    I remember picking dozens of them and by the time we arrived at home they were wilted and we had to throw some away. Almost hurts thinking about this now.
    I also knew where there were a couple of plants, and I would go in secret just to look at them. I can still see one plant in my mind’s eye. What great memories.

    Best of luck!!!

  3. Lovely anemones, Moshe. It’s been a while since I’ve seen these flowers!!
    When you say you mount them on stretched canvas, is that before or after you paint them, and with what–glue?

    I like all of them.

    Good luck.

  4. Thank you so much Josie,

    That was a really small canvases, and I glued the paper to them before I painted the pictures. Just used a white glue. I trimmed the sides with a utility knife, but this works better on wood panels/boards, which has straight edges. The canvas is a bit more rounded, so to make it flushed, I used sand paper around. It actually looked nice. The wax I poured over it later (pictures in another blog post) covered it of course.

    Cheers
