Watercolor leaves (maple 2)
I created this pressed leaf watercolor fall 2019 but for some reason didn't get posted. This is a good reminder to me to get out in the yard and make some more while the leaves are nice and fresh!
For this pressing I used leaves from a maple tree over a wet wash of inexpensive generic metallic watercolors.
I don't think this pressing is one of my best. I didn't get good even leaf adhesion (the big white areas) but it still would be a good background for additional embellishments.
