Dragon tree revisited in Geelong Botanic Gardens
Yesterday we drove back to the Geelong Botanic Gardens to do some more sketching and collect data for some future paintings. I discovered that there were at least three young Dragon Trees not far from the old Dragon Tree that was planted in the 1850s and moved in recent years to be part of the 21st Century garden where it is now propped up.
One hot evening we both drew the scene overlooking Eastern Beach so here are some scans from a picture I made of the view overlooking the swimming pools. Hey, a stingray was found in the main pool the other day! The sharkproof fence only keeps out 'large' predators!
The scanner did strange things with some of my pictures - maybe the paper was too big, causing shadows, and also I used 'illustration' instead of 'photo'.
