Original Botanical Watercolour Illustration of a Beech Tree through the Seasons
Beech is a long-lived tree which plays host to a whole range of wildlife.  From caterpillars to squirrels, fungi to lichen and all the other species which thrive in the shelter of the dense canopy too.  There is a really well known tree just outside our village and many of our local hedgerows have beech within them.  As a result it was relatively easy to take photographs of the seasonal changes to the leaves.  Although the summer one was somewhat challenging as we wanted to add interest and include an insect of some sort!  This is the first seasonal study I have undertaken on a tree and it is a project that I have thoroughly enjoyed.  I hope you like it too.

Packaging & Materials
I have used an excellent quality watercolour paper and the finest of brushes to produce the tiny details which bring this painting to life.

The painting will be carefully wrapped in cellophane and protected with additional packing.  Likewise, I aim for my originals to arrive with you in the same condition that they left me.  I use the Royal Mail’s ‘Signed for Next Day’ or ‘International Tracked’ service.

A bit about me…

I love to capture the life within my paintings and also enjoy working with the watercolour medium to create fine detail.  I am continually adding to my portfolio and draw inspiration from amazing photographers and also the stunning North Devon environment.

Do you want to create your own original botanical watercolour illustration?  Maybe take a look at becoming a member of my online school.  I feel that I have found my niche and I absolutely love teaching others.  Firstly, I find it extremely rewarding to be able to see the progress my students make.  Secondly I enjoy being able to interact directly with fellow wildlife artists.  Thirdly and most importantly I am able to share my love of the watercolour medium.  So take a look on YouTube or become a member and you may see this painting being created or learn how to paint your own version.
