I have travelled Sri Lanka for 15 days, and though I had little time to actually paint, I collected some flowers/leafs. I dried all in a small travel herbarium I made; Negombo, Kalle, Tangalle, Kandy, Deniyaya, Hortan Plains. I picked up some leaves of the 2500 year old Bodhi tree, which is a saplingĀ of the original Budha tree from India.
