Flower Emblems of Australia

 On our trip to Australia nine months ago I was fortunate to almost fill a Stillman & Birn Alpha Series Sketchbook with fun sketches.  Almost  filled, but not quite.  Since our trip I've been slowly filling those remaining blank pages with many things Australian, drawing and painting mostly from my trip photos.  I recently had the idea to sketch all of the flower emblems of Australia in this book!

It was fun to learn a little bit about each of the flowers as I discovered which belonged to which state.  Some of these flowers are really unique!

All of the source photos for these sketches were from Wikimedia Commons.
