Moreton Bay Fig and a wedding

I went to the Gardens afterwork today. I wasn't quite sure what I was going to draw, but when I saw the massive hanging branches of this Moreton Bay Fig on the Bennelong Lawn I knew this was it. If you look carefully, there are two people sitting at the base of the tree.

And then... a wedding party arrived for a quick photo, before moving on. The photographer spent a few minutes lining them up for the photo, so I quickly scribbled down their shapes onto paper, adding the colour afterwards.


  1. Wish I could join you there. It looks like a beautiful place.
    I have sketched a tree like this, what a challenge with it being so sprawling. This is beautiful.

  2. Alissa, I love the feeling you have caught of that big protective canopy and the Wedding party are fun.
