I love fall leaves! Their colors and shapes. Found this one on a bike ride with my daughter. It is huge! Bigger than your head. And the reds were exquisite. I like the contrast between the hard grey rocks and the vibrant red, organic leaf.
A photo progression slide show of this piece can be seen on my YouTube channel. You’ll see a note that I brushed as much pigment off as I could and started again following a tutorial for using denatured alcohol to “wash” the pigment into the paper. Works really well and I’ve used it several times since. I did that because I just wasn’t getting the look I was after. The wash helped as did setting it aside for more than a month.
