Gum leaves, gum flowers, wattle

from wYesterday I picked up some gum leaves, nuts, flowers to draw with an ordinary blue biro, then scanned the pictures in plus a scan of actual leaves etc. When a group of Fiji people were drinking kava and others were watching the football match in a home in Wyndam Vale I made the sketches, feeling a bit unsociable at the time. I really can't watch football too long. Then today I made a few variations mainly by overlapping two pictures at a time. The Australian trees may look ordinary from a distance but there are interesting shapes in the small details. Saturday I was at a property out of town and noticed the wattle was already blooming so that's quite early this year.
