Banksia - a unique Australian plant that has a flower spike made up of hundreds of individual flowers. As it ages the flowers drop of to show a woody fruiting cone that has follicles that contain seeds.
In my sketchbook I wanted to share a part of the Australian bush that I love. Pages have been eco-dyed using native plants such as gum leaves and ferns. I have drawn and printed images of the banksia over this showing the different stages of the life of the flowers and fruit.
