Watercolour on paper
80 cm H x 80 cm W
Watercolour on Arches 300gsm hot pressed paper. In January 2020, the skies were heavy with bush fire smoke and the streets were deserted. I was making a short walk to the shops when I spotted this distinctive Australian native tree on the roadside. I decided to paint it. Knowing that, at the time, so much native bush was burning across the east coast of Australia, added further sentiment to painting this beautiful Australian native plant.
