“Waratah number three” by Anica Amphlett is an original watercolour painting using quality watercolour on Saunders Waterford 300gsm paper. The painting measures 27cm x 37cm and is unframed.


This is the third painting in my series of waratahs this Spring, a single waratah bloom just from a different angle. All angles are beautiful, so there are many to choose from. I am making the most of my beautiful fresh waratahs whilst I can, as nothing lasts forever, especially cut flowers. This year I am really taking notice of their life cycle and will be painting different stages of this beautiful bloom in this current series.

There are several species of waratahs and I believe this is the ‘Braidwood Brilliant’ with its smooth-edged leaves. It is a hybrid of the main Telopea speciosissima ideal to be grown in gardens. More broadly, all waratahs fit into the larger Protea family.

Please visit again to see buds, more mature blooms and also seed pods.

I love to paint all things to do with nature, especially flowers, and continually check my work to see if it connects with my soul, as I hope it will connect with yours! My aim is for my paintings to bring you joy!
