Day 13: Red Gum Returns…

I’ve been looking through my previous experiments and examining the few blossoms that are still around on the Red Gum bushes and decided to give it another try.

One thing I haven’t managed to include so far are the distinctive long eucalyptus¬†leaves that this shrub has. Also, most of my previous efforts have missed the very fine, almost fluffy, aspect of the flower heads.

So, here we have the second wash of a new composition. The flowers are more delicate and tomorrow I need to think how to add some foliage.
