Banksia menziesii, after dusk

405 x 510mm
Medium Oil on Linen


One of a series of oil paintings on linen exploring the change in light after dusk. After the heat and brightness of the day, the leaves of the plants quietly soak up the restorative coolness of early evening. Many people fear visiting the bush at these times, yet it is one of the most transformative as the colours gradually fade to darkness.
