World under feet - Hygrocybe graminicolor (green fungus), Clavaria amoena (yellow fungus) and Doodia aspera (fern)

Watercolour on paper
20 cm H x 26 cm W


These Nature's treasures were found during the trip to Styx Valley, Tasmania, which is famous by its giant trees. But while other members of our trip were excited by the giants I found myself absolutely delighted by the microworld under my feet. I never imagined that one tiny patch under our feet could be so colourful, beautiful and fragile. Inspired by what I've seen there I painted this watercolour after back home.
