Southern Bluegum in watercolour. Australian Native. Lots of these around Canberra, we have the perfect climate for them. The leaves are huge, and the new growth looks so different to the rest of the leaves.
I’m a botanical artist living near Canberra, Australia. I’ve dabbled in many art forms over the years, but have been focussing on botanical watercolour painting since 2000. I build up my watercolours in many layers of soft washes, and finish off with darker washes and dry brush work with very fine brushes. I particularly enjoy painting Australian Native plants, and have done many fruit studies.
