seasons in an artist's garden
by gael sellwood

This hard cover book features about 150 paintings by RHS gold medal winning botanical and natural history artist, Gael Sellwood. Following study in art and botanical illustration she has gone on to capture the plants and other objects from her conservation garden in meticulous detail on paper or vellum. The evocative text follows the seasons, month by month, and features a short technical section about painting on vellum. Gael has featured on BBC Countryfile, is Vice President of the Society of Botanical Artists and has work in numerous collections, including the RHS Lindley Library and the Hunt Institute.
