Earlier in the spring, I made some leaf prints by boiling botanicals between sheets of watercolor paper. I am having a book making workshop in about a month and wanted to get my leaf prints done so I could incorporate them into a book.
On this print I thought I might outline the shapes of the plants but it just looked awkward so I stopped.
These leaves were so plain I thought the outline might work. Not so much. Then I decided to tint them with watercolors. Meh.
Painting the negative space was slightly more successful but still not great
Now I was getting a bit better at it.
While I was painting these I was boiling another set of prints. Stay tuned....
