The trees are now covered in copper leaf. I add the copper very roughly so touches of the red paint show through, this gives them the texture of bark. Adding the leaves is a pretty laborious job so I turn on the computer and tune into BBC iplayer to listen to the dramas while I work. Adding the leaves will take several days and I may add several layers.
In the second photo you can see my paints. I always use a tear-off palette which I can discard after use - anything to save extra work!
