 in response to india's response
and after a wee conversation
via the ethers
 i put together a bundle
of leaves from an as yet unidentified shrub
and found some green and bluish green
and gold
on arches velin
in actual color
(for my camera sometimes reads colors wrong)
the greens are very green
(those floorboards are more pumpkin, for example)
i think we sagittarians
like pointing out untruths!
these leaves, 
started out red.
(yes, there is copper in the dyepot)

i find greens like that to be a challenge to get. those are gorgeous! any chance you have a pic of the whole tree/shrub?

thanks, valerie, and jean, too
joni, i don't but i will try to remember to get one. maybe you can identify it...

from the shape of the leaf i'm wondering if it could be a prunus? have had experience of both p. nigra and p.blireana printing deep blues on moleskine notebook paper [the writing kind, not the watercolour book]
