Sycamore Seed Botanical Illustration – Original, Fine Art Detail
The distinctive Sycamore tree helicopters!  I am guessing we can all remember these from our childhood’s, I certainly can.  Their ‘proper’ name is Sycamore keys or samaras …. I prefer knowing them as helicopters.  These are the fruits of the tree and are eaten by many birds and small mammals.  Those that are not food for hungry wildlife will be carried on the wind, travelling further than they would if they simply dropped to the ground.  This ultimately gives the trees more room to grow and a better chance of survival.

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.
