Basil juice on aquarell paper, photo transparent on it, 10 days in the sun, and voilà: a face!


All My Colours

I am a happy painter at the moment – I have pretty much time and space to test different plant colours (which will eventually be an emulsion on a piece of cardbord or fabric to make an anthotype!).

A bright pink comes from beetroot. Mix some fresh turmeric (curcuma) in it and you obtain a warmer red tone.
Same with red cabbage: you receive a bright blue. Turmeric in: green!
Turmeric pure is a bright, almost neon yellow!

I love it! 😍
