Fuchsia Gum painting

The Fuchsia Gum Eucalyptus forrestiana is a mallee eucalyptus indigenous to the area around Esperance in Western Australia. It also grows quite well over here in northern Victoria and is one of my favourite cut flowers - a couple of branches simply poked into an old jug make a great display (and they last for weeks too).

 I painted this design in gouache with colour pencil details.
