Gesso leaves

I continued experimenting with gesso and used an acrylic stamp of a leaf with the gesso to create a resist pattern for the inks. I then sprayed it with two colours of inks then sponged on two colours of dye inks. I finally sprayed with a copper spray to give it a coppery sheen which of course doesn't show up on the scan.

I also modified the previous background by sponging on some dark brown ink because it was too bright.
