Toned cyanotype on calico

Description

This artwork uses leaves gathered around my house on the Central Coast to create a unique piece of art and is inspired by the falling leaves in autumn.

Cyanotype is a process that creates dark blue or cyan blue prints. Prints are created by exposing the solution to sunlight with objects placed over the solution. As the process uses the sunlight to develop the image, each print is unique according to the time of day, and the weather. The toning process involves placing the developed print into a bath of tea, turning the blue to a brown or purple.
