bramble and honeysuckle in the hedgeI was privledged  to study  Botanical drawing with the late Mike Hickey, who taught me  about the character of growing plants.  I learnt that the tradition of botanical drawing dates back more than three thousand years. The earliest Plant illustrations were often produced to enable the identification of medicinal plants. Eventually, renaissance artists, such as Bellini and Durer painted natural beautiful plants, often as embellishments in large compositions.
