The leaves are amazing at the moment, colours from bitter yellow to dark brown, orange, red and pinks. I want to make a concertina book using the leaves collected this month.
Subs brought me some Bean Tree leaves as well as lots of different leaves from the gardens he is working in.
I am monoprinting the leaves using water based printmaking inks on hand-made Indian paper. I will add layers of different colours that overlap and show through. I am mixing the ink with extender to provide transparency.
