I painted this today at the Heathcote Botanical Gardens in the Gloria Moore Memorial garden. It was perfect today, not too hot or cold. They are having a nice plant sale this weekend, I took a look at some of the plants they are selling, lots of lovely bromileads and other cool plants.
I took a few liberties with the plant positions, in real life there is a nice screw palm that I have painted before. Its right in front of the bamboo. I was enjoying doing the in and out lights and darks of the bamboo that I didn't want to cover my work with another big plant.
Its 8 x 10 inches, oil on masonite.
