Banksia seed pods watercolour on paper

It's wintertime so there aren't any flowers on Banksia bushes in the park across the road or on the bushes in the countryside - I have seen them in florists though.

These seed pods are wierd. It took me a while to get my head around the knobbly shapes and earthy colours.

I've also tried to represent the foliage as they grow from the branch - hence the gumleaves are upside down and these twigs are askew.
