An Aspiration

I would like to draw more wild flowers… but how best to portray them and what materials should I use?

The flower below is a Wood Anemone that flowers early in the spring in local woodlands. I used colour pencil and experimented on a number of different papers but not entirely happy with any of my results. Is this the time to try watercolour?
