    Looks cool Donna… love the depth and layers created with just the leaves… nice! o(~_O)o

  • Thanks Dentanarts! I have just had it laser printed to get the colours bright and clear enough. I have had a lot of fun with the collage and all the possibilities!

    Love the bright green ‘moon’ highlights! Beautiful and spooky at the same time.

  • Thanks Nick! I love night scenes. I wouldn’t mind wandering through this garden. It is kind of a surreal feeling I get when I paint and draw these scenes.

    Ooooh, this is really quite lovely. I would love to have a garden like this. It looks so enchanting.

  • Thanks Anne. I guess this would be a garden with less upkeep and wouldn’t have to mow the lawn etc! LOL.

    I really like this! Love the night scene and depth you have achieved with this.

  • Thanks Vicky! I am experimenting with highlights. After I have laser or inkjet printed a work I paint in the highlights and shading if needed. At the moment I have bits of leaves and garden all over my desk and in the recycle bin in the office!

    Sounds like your having great fun! I’m looking forward to seeing more. vix

  • It has been quite cool here in Oz so I am getting back to new works and finishing others. It is quite satisfying to see some projects I have had in mind for a while and now see them come to fruition.
