Home made pigment

I’m a very lucky to have a wonderful friend who made me some watercolour paint from the rocks close to her home. She named it Branscombe Brown for the Branscombe Mudstone Formation which was the source of the pigment.

Ginkgo biloba, work in progress

This one was my first attempt. It’s a Ginkgo biloba leaf. The colour of the paint is reminiscent of the autumnal colour of the leaf.
