After a visit to stunning Hamilton Island, I was inspired on my walks by its tropical flora and fauna. I wanted to capture 'paradise' in this painting and the feeling that you are on holidays. I was lucky enough to spot a gorgeous little Olive-backed Sunbird hovering in the leaves. You will spot this creature in my painting. A colour pop of hibiscus, the beautiful flowering gingers, delicate orchids and bird of paradise are a great contrast to the masses of dark green foliage. My favourite icon on Hamilton Island were the Moreton Bay Ash gumtrees. I couldn't take my eyes off their tessellated bark and then the abrupt change to smooth bright white against the blue sky.
