Then I used a fine water spray to mist over the paper where I wanted leaves & dropped ink gently into the patches of water with a paint brush. Where there was a lot of water, the ink ran beautifully and when dry, looked like sunlight coming through the leaves. Once the leaves had dried, I had to go over the trunks again as they had faded in places - perhaps next time I would do the leaves first. I also re-applied the water spray and ink in places to make parts of the leaves darker.
For a first attempt, I am really pleased with this and can see lots of potential for future pictures.
