Fallen Leaves – True Colours
Leaves fall – or are pushed – off trees so that the tree can survive the winter and grow new leaves in the spring.
Fallen leaves are recycled. After a leave has reached the ground, it begins to break down (with the help of animals, bacteria, and fungi), creating a layer of decaying organic material at the base of the tree. The leaf matter is converted back into simple carbon dioxide and water.
Here are some finished prints from my ‘True Colours’ project. I will also be making Gum Bichromate prints and some will be printed on Japanese Kozo.
