Three Ferns is a print of real fern leaves from the woodland area of my garden. I covered the leaves with acrylic paint and printed them on canvas, adding more paint and colour for a sense of depth and beauty and finishing with some colour splashes and gold accents. The colours I used are not often my first choice, so it was interesting for me to see how well the colour combination suited the nature of the ferns.
