Object Detail

Watercolour painting on rectangular sheet of brown paper, with a brown window mount, and backing. The painting is a botanical illustration of four plants with flowers, thought to be Olearia insignis. The leaves emanate outwards and upwards from a central point. The leaves are long and lance-shaped, green on top with white margins, and white underneath. Solitary flowers are on long white-pink stems. The flowers have multiple thin white petals radiating out from a large yellow-orange centre. The flowers have a white grey inferior ovary covered with white and brown scaly sepals. There is cross hatching in a wash of browns.

The painting is marked "NINA JONES"
