|Provinsi Lady Palm|
Mixed Media, on sketch paper 18 x 25 cm
There is a certain airiness to the place. Lots of shade and yet the diffused light cast many interesting bright spots on the lawn. All around the lawn is mixed vegetation. The main ornamental tree is the Pong-Pong (Cerbera odollam) and in the middle of the picture is a fruit of the Pong-Pong hanging like a green apple. The heliconia shrubs add much needed colour in their orange bracts. Two oil palm trees provide visual perspective. It is nice to have a walk through the area for its diversity. The steps behind the oil palm tree in the background leads to the Botanic Island One.
