A few weeks ago I went to the Australian Garden, which is part of the Royal Botanic Gardens Melbourne, located in Cranbourne, a recently established garden which features Australian Native Plants. It was really beautiful with great ideas on how to use Australian Natives in the garden. While still a very young garden it was well worth seeing.
Needless to say I took a lot of photos of all the gorgeous flowers, and have a great store of images I want to paint. You will see some in the coming weeks/months.
For my first image I choose another Grevillea. I really love the composition of this image, the colour of the leaves and the bizarre shapes of the Grevillea flowers still intrigue me. This is another A2 size painting, I do love working at this size.
