• 02 Jacek Gonsalves Printmaker Red And Yellow Banksia Menziesii

Additional Information

Banksia menziesii is found solely in Western Australia, from the Murchison River in the north, to Pinjarra in the south. It is mainly confined to the deep sands of the coastal plains due to the unsuitable, heavy soils of the Darling Scarp; however, there are a few isolated populations approximately 200 km east of Perth.

Menzies’ Banksia varies greatly in size from shrubs of around 2 m to trees growing commonly to 7 m in Banksia woodland.

This attractive small tree has grey green serrated foliage and large conspicuous terminal flowers from February to October. These iconic flowers grow up to 8 cm across and 12 cm high with a range colour forms that are usually two toned. The most common combination is the deep red and pink form but others include cream, gold, burgundy, bronze and chocolate.

Cyanotype is a process of combining two solution together to become light senstive. This solution is coated across watercolour paper, dried and then exposed with a large negative.
