Plant material + paper + ink. A totally absorbing hobby. The above photo shows the underside of sage leaves. Just look at the intricate network of patterns.
Other suitable plant material for printing include rose leaves, ferns, strawberry leaves, mint and blackberry leaves, tree leaves, various herbs, dandelions etc.
Whilst looking in the garden for plants to print, I found this crushed rose on the ground. Even in death her beauty shines through. Her colours are vivid and her crumpled form displays interesting shapes. I think I should like to paint her. The marble table replicates the sky and the whole image has an ethereal quality.
Edited: I have put another two polls on the top right side of my blog. It will be interesting to see the outcome of them. I am asking these questions to guide me in my decision making processes! The results of the previous two polls are at the bottom of my blog. Thank you for taking part. x
