I said I was tired of eco prints and need a break. As I wanted to learn acrylic painting for the colourful instant outcome. However not long for a while I can't resist the bounty of nature and done a few again.
For the few sessions of learning I enjoyed so much the colors playing. In the meantime........
the day after strong wind I passed by the bush of eucalyptus I found lots of wind blown branches with buds on the ground.
Can't resist to take home otherwise it would be disposed of.
On my Friday hiking last I also found some windfalls of euc and some local sweet gum.
Our sweet gum are still green because of warm weather.
Can't resist to do again eco prints. Put a few pines, some euc and a rose.
After two hours of bundle boiling of the wool flannel, opened with delight.
The bright and bold of eco collected on Friday hiking
The buds of this euc are brown. I never know which one gives red or brown as they're picked on ground. That's the challenge!
Rose petals purple as wished
I lined with backing then a wall hanging or a table runner is made.
Clos up of the prints..... Casaurina pines and euc.
Rose petals and rose leaves

Territorial Mogi, he owns everything! Whatever new stuff I put on the floor he occupies it right away.
Before and After
This is another printing with local sweet gum and the euc with smaller buds. I'll make it another tapestry.
Fresh buds are rare to get thanks to strong wind I can pick from ground.
I used some other euc with iron mordant to make my Tuscany theme. Another prints to follow later.
