A bent tree near Anglesea

from w
A photo taken the other day was of a gum tree bent over at the Burnside Youth Camp near Anglesea. I made a sketch based on it but altered it by adding yellow because so much of the bush at present is bright with late wattle and heath. Pen, pencils, pastels. It was good to drive out along the Great Ocean Road, see the colours of the bush, though not slowing down to see the tiny wildflowers that are coming out. Here is the photo, the sketch and variations.

You are starting a lovely spring in Australia as our autumn is starting here in the states, I hope the rain keeps the wildflowers coming. Really am enjoying your pictures, Wendy.

Hello Annie,
You can view lots of photos of orchids taken by a local woman. There are so many wildflowers hidden in the bush that we never see. Here is the link.
