More Rubbing Block Experimentation

Here is a second rubbing I did from a fern plate and two shades of intense block green - a lime and a dark green, although I achieved a sort of watercolour effect I didn't feel this attempt was as successful as the oak leaves. I think that was partly because the leaves were so intertwined. But it is good example of why we need to play with the are materials we have. I used an ink pen to outline the leaf sections so that it was less of a blur, Not sure that I would use this one for full work but maybe just a part of a fern would be interesting
