The ginkgo tree is so ancient that it predates flowering plants. All of its relative species are found fossilised.

The distinctive shape of its leaf seems to be formed by the veins, which spread out and follow paths of a fractal pattern.


Rock Pool and House Plant, sketches.

To the left: Sketches of the inhabitants of a rock pool, fleeting between the shelter of the crevices and the warmth of the sun.
