If you stopped by my table at Hands-On Creativity in October, you may have painted a similar leaf. This is another example of the interesting effects possible with Daniel Smith’s Primatek paint – it still amazes me that all the colors and textures in this leaf came out of one tube! When Hematite Burnt Scarlet Genuine, which is one of my favorites, mixes with enough water, it separates into different hues and granulates dramatically. I also added some of Winsor & Newton’s Granulation Medium to increase the texture; while the paper was still wet, I used the end of a metal paint tube to scratch in the veins.
