This is an enlarged version of my laser print of my Flamingo topiary in a formal hedge garden scene at night.
I had used a laser print of my hedge garden (I had drawn and then painted and then collaged to form the garden hedge.) as a background. Then I had painted a transparency with my Flamingo (that had started out as a drawing and then transferred to a transparency via an Epson inkjet printer) over the background.
I then painted the highlights of the leaves with acrylic paint and then had the complete collage laser-printed to make the colours really ‘pop’.
