The back story.... painting the flowers in situ

In the spring of 2020, between Covid lockdown periods, the native flowers were blooming in my region, more than I had ever noticed - perhaps I was just more tuned in.  I decided to fill a little sketchbook just with quick loose studies of the wild flowers, sometimes walking and sketching, and sometimes with a bit more of a set up if I had planned to spend several hours out and about my local bush tracks.  

Even walking my local streets the weeds were captuing my attention and calling to be painted. 

 

A highlight was seeing Waratahs growing in the wild for the first time in my life, and the realisation that they grow in very few places but I am lucky enought to have a triangular patch of ground that they like only about 30 mins from my home - in a place called Warah Trig.  When they are in flower it is quite the tourist attraction.
