BANKSIA is a study of the beautiful coastal Banksia tree. I love the glossy green leaves and the felty silver-grey green underleaf. I am also extremely drawn to the sharp casting shadows that the bright Queensland sun throws when a subject is bathed in its light which can be identified in this painting. Additionally, there is a lovely connection to the Australian landscape that this subject resonates with me, and as I am a predominantly landscape painter I couldn't help but connect with my subject.
