Birch Leaf Printing

Birch Leaf Printing with watercolour paints

I’ve been on my first adventure this year to the Brecon Beacons today! I was so excited to wander on Mynydd Illtyd, one of my favourite places to be. After taking in the view from the trig point, the cloud lifted and I had a peep at Pen Y Fan.

I settled by the Ancient Walking Birch Tree for a while. As the wind blew, I printed with watercolour paint brushed onto the back of the fallen leaves and pressed them onto my Seawhite of Brighton sketchbook.

Maybe the Printing with the Birch leaf might inspire you to add something to the page. The next time you go for a wander, I hope you take your sketchbook with you and try printing with nature.
