The Story

Lambertia Formosa is more commonly known as Mountain Devil.  

This painting represents the two Mountain Devils found on the two mountains on either side of the MacDonald valley, with one climb being significantly more difficult than the other. The climb to find one of these plants is certainly worth it, because amongst the spikey cactus-like leaves is the most incredible colour flower that almost seems to glow. The reference for this painting was taken at the top of a mountain in the MacDonald Valley West of the NSW Central coast. The area is only accessible via hundreds of kilometres of very rough roads and two ferry’s (if you come from Sydney) followed by a lengthy hike/climb to one of the mountain summits(I found one small plant on both summits in this particular valley). This flower is only present in a very small section of the east coast of Australia around the Sydney region. The effort to find one is certainly worth it, because amongst the spikey cactus-like leaves is the most incredible colour flower. It almost seems to glow.

The Materials and Process

This painting was completed in oil over a pre-prepared acrylic base on matting board and has been sealed with a final varnish. The artists signature appears in the margin (Hidden when framed). The artists own photographs were used as reference and the work completed later in the studio.

One of the first studies of Lambertia Formosa was illustrated by H.C. Andrews in 1797. You can see it here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lambertia_formosa#/media/File:Botanistsreposit12andr_0291.jpg
