Imprint of Stones and Leaves 4


Today it’s been snowing really hard in Virginia (see below), so I was in the mood for a little bit of spring! I worked on this piece last spring in my Drawing in Place class when my professor invited us over to her house out in the country for some tea and homemade bread. It was such a warm, sunny day for a while, and then later, some gloomy clouds rolled in for an overcast sky.

For a while, we all wandered around the garden and woods nearby, collecting little objects of nature that inspired us. Then, we found a way to create our own little stamps by laying the objects down and working with the negative space. I felt like a little kid because I tossed some drips and splashes of watercolor on the page as my technique. After that, I went back with a pretty little leaf and created some imprints and stamps on the right. It turned out to be a great experiment for a beautiful spring day!
