Here's the chosen (maple leaf with smallish and fancy shaped leaves) tree:
Here's one bag of leaves. Hundreds it looks like. Who knows. I didn't take the time to count because by the time I got home the leaves were beginning to dry out and curl and not want to easily lay flat in a book. I disgarded a bunch because of this.
Here's a teaser. I did a few in the microwave press. It gives you an idea of the colors. Quite a lot of yellows and rich reds. No greens whatsoever. I do love the combination of rich dark green with deep strong yellow. This tree does not provide those. Nothing is perfect hey?
My goal is to use the leaves as a resource for color choice(s) in my artwork.
Nice to see you again,
Thanks for dropping in! Talk soon,*smiles* Norma
