Session 24 - Making foliage with a sponge

For today we moved on to a new technique, involving the use of a natural sea sponge to make the foliage of a cherry tree in bloom. The ladies at the workshop were so impressed about how easy is to make the foliage look so natural and so beautiful at the same time with the right colors and just a few movements. Of course, it takes some time and quite a few experiments to learn to handle the sponge, and there are also some variations in the sponges which gives different results. We are still experimenting, and I am looking forward for the finished works, as we only managed to get the first few layers of paint done during the workshop after demonstrating the technique and a few experiments on a trial paper.
