A Scottish drawing expedition gets underway

posted on December 7, 2012

Sylva’s Artist-in-Residence, Sarah Simblet, has been in the Scottish Highlands with Gabriel Hemery this week.

The co-authors of The New Sylva are completing the latest phase of work for the book to be published by Bloomsbury in 2014, sponsored by the Sylva Foundation.

So far during their Scottish drawing expedition they have visited some Caledonian Pinewood, to research and draw Scots pine, and a stand of birch next to a loch. Later this week they are going in search of some of the tallest trees in Britain, and an amazing natural forest ecosystem on the West coast of Scotland.
