Everyday Matters Drawing Challenge 287

EDM-287Here I am again waving as I have another Everyday Matters drawing challenge sketch to share. The other day while out walking I noticed a carpet of gum blossom on the public foot path. The Sulphur crested cockatoos and Galahs had been sitting on top of a large pink flowering gum tree and nipping the blossoms off. They do this in the quest for nectar but in the process bombard anyone who happens to be beneath the tree!

So I found a delightful little treasure to draw. What I love about many of Australia’s native trees and flowers is that if you look closely at hem they clearly display complimentary colours. For instance I am not sure if you can see it in the photograph but the little stem of this had both green and pink in it. (If you click on the image it will take you to a page that displays a larger version)

So this can only be Everyday Matters drawing challenge 287 “Draw something colourful”

If you are interested, here is  the EDM challenge list  and if you scroll you can see my past efforts. The Every Day Matters drawing challenge has  a yahoo group, a flickr group and Facebook page.

  1. Gosh! It all sounds so exotic to me, but it’s so commonplace to you.=)

    Nice work. I really should get down to some drawing again…

    That really is a lovely blossom – reminds me of candy floss!

    I love reading this blog, Sharon. Thanks for doing it. It has made me get my sketch book out and doodle some.

    I love this website as I have been struggling with drawing and the list has made me decide to keep persevering at it. Love all your drawings. Not sure when you get the time to do all of this.
