Botanical Watercolour Leaf Illustration – A Realistic Ivy Leaf
Ivy is a well known plant, it grows throughout the UK and can be found in a diverse range of habitats.  Indeed, it is tolerant of many types of soil, aspect and temperature.  It is an evergreen plant which supports at least 50 different species of wildlife.  Indeed, throughout autumn and winter it is a vital source of nectar, pollen and berries for many insects and birds.  This type of ivy has specialised hairs on the stem which help it to climb and stick to surfaces whereas other ivy species spread across the ground.

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 botanical watercolour leaf 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.

Here’s a look at the ivy leaf tutorial, I hope you like it.
