Feathery fine bamboo
Ink sketch of a bamboo tree branch, created near Johnson's Gap, Bulldog Road.
Browning was commissioned to gather visual information along the Kokado track for the production of a series of dioramas back in Australia. In order to capture the details of the tropical environment Browning created a combination of watercolours sketches along with a series pen and pencil drawings. His decision to use pen and pencil was made to more accurately record botanical details that the blobbiness of watercolour might miss.
