Banksia Marginata

from w
There are plenty of banksia marginata growing around the Bellarine Penisular and we noticed several at Balyang Sanctuary the other day. The leaves are smooth edged not like the banksia serrata. Banks of course was on the Captain Cook expedition and the various banksia trees are named after him. I picked up some seedpods and sketched them at home and then played around with the shapes and textures by overlapping various images.
