Botanical Paintings

Botanical painting is the art of depicting the form, colour and details of plant species. These paintings should be scientifically accurate, but also express the nature of the plant through composition. Living in Carlton one would think it difficult to find interesting specimens, but there is a wide variety of plant life hanging over back fences, in the local parks and at the florist to provide continuing inspiration.
