Leaf Painting

Autumn is perfect to paint a forest with leafs.

One day I woke up with the urgency of painting a forest.

I was thinking about how to do it and I decided to take a walk in the woods. It is always inspiring and relaxing.

I came back with leafs instead of pictures or a precise idea of how I wanted to represent something that is so dear to me. Trees.

Like I would have done it back in the days, I simply used ink (red and black) and different type of leafs.

What do you need:

  • leafs
  • ink or paint
  • sponge
  • paper
  • gloves

How to paint with leafs:

  1. choose different leafs and dimensions
  2. cover them with ink or paint with a sponge (in case of paint also with a brush)
  3. wear gloves and place them on a piece of paper and press for few seconds
  4. carefully remove the leaf


Now it is happily hanging in my bedroom and I love it.
