Superb Fairy Wrens and Nodding Greenhood Orchids “Green Heaven”

The play of colours of these blue birds against all the delicate greens of the orchids appealed to me, also to show the beautiful relationship between such delicate birds and flowers.

Note from the editor:

Botanical artists are highly skilled, producing important records of botanical subjects. Their works of art are also visually appealing in their own right ; illustrations may be ink, watercolour, pencil, oils or a combination. The Gardening Magazine features Botanical Art and artists to promote their work and to provide another platform to display these remarkable art forms.
