Handmade Book of Winter

‘Images of Winter’, a handmade book of winter. I made the images for this over the last two winters and have finally put it all together. Many of the specimens were collected on winter walks or painted from photographs I took. The lichen mosaic at the end was done as part of a project run by natural history artist Sarah Morrish over last winter. The book comprises watercolour and pen and ink illustrations. The single leaves are painted on Lokta paper which gives them some texture and a realistic look.
