Playing with Leaves

I completed these back in November when the autumn leaves were littering the pavements.  I was enjoying sketching but thought I should mix things up a bit.  Came across them today so thought I’d post them.

I started off with blue writing ink which worked quite well

Then tried liquid watercolour which I’d picked up in Tiger – comes in an ink type bottle.  The leaf imprints weren’t great but I liked the effect when I washed over with diluted colour.  Probably should have left it at single colour as the gold didn’t really work so well.

Think I may revisit this technique again to add texture – just not sure when or on what.
