Julie McEnerny 'Little Stick #24 2020
WaterColour Pencil, Paper size 21 x 15 cm
Little Sticks is a series inspired by fallen sticks and branches and the epiphytes and lichens that grow on them. Mainly from Melaleuca trees (our native paperbarks), the sticks I've found have been host to a range of plants including the Australian ant-plant and button orchid, a range of native ferns and coloured lichens.
Paper is 100% recycled cotton rag, handmade in India (Khadi Papers). If necessary re-flatten by spraying the back and placing under heavy weight eg book overnight. Do not wet the front.
