Lovin' the Anemones

I took the reference photo for this a few weeks ago — a florist shop, with glass vases of anemones on a glass tabletop. Brilliant, literally. I've been quite taken with anemones lately. 

Other than the green stems, everything in the painting is grey. My monitor is showing the background more blue than it is. Oh, the flowers have a few bright white areas, and the glass of course has highlights, but the rest is just grey. I had quite a good time mixing all those greys out of yellow, red and blue. Oh and sometimes white.
