Ogilvie also made a colour linocut of this subject, and probably worked from drawings of the Banksia plant to make both linocut

‘This is purely that I loved the design of them and I wanted to put it down … I collected it in the wild, when we were on our
holidays, and I think I got these from South Gippsland … or the east coast, because they were the most beautiful ones.’
