I was so taken with Geninne's incredible painted leaves that I had to try painting on some of my own pressed leaves. I am not a fine painter like Geninne--I'm just a doodler--so please be kind to my experiments. They were so much fun to make! The leaf pictured above received a wash of gold gouache, followed by swirls in white acrylic ink.
My tools and materials: a beat-up old Brause 66EF nib; Schmincke gold gouache; F&W artist ink; and a decent brush. (All available here). Oh, and leaves!
