Native Flora - Bottlebrush

Callistemon citrinus - Bottlebrush

The first trial plates of a series depicting Australian native flora. The Bottlebrush seemed an ideal flower spike to start with. It is a very common natural and garden plant on the east coast and the nectar attracts birds and bees. Often see it on the freeway used as a hardy screening plant.

Simple clear on white Spectrum 96 glass with the stem and petals drawn on with Glassline paints.
A good size plate at 310 x 185 mm and good value at $100 plus GST and shipping.
