Many trees use wind to disperse their seeds by having ‘wings’ attached to their seeds. The most common are ash, sycamore and those of the maple family. This course will study these beautiful forms and their associated leaves, observing their colour and structure to make a composition of several on a page, initially drawing them and then painting them with watercolours. The course is suitable for all abilities.
