Lupin Leaves – Original Cyanotype
This beautiful Cyanotype of Lupin leaves is an original one of a kind work of art.
It is created, using the wet cyanotype process, on beautiful Hahnemuhle paper. The size is 11 x 7.5 ins. and it is unframed.
The wet process is a variation on the traditional cyanotype method. It can be performed on dry pre-prepared sheets of photosensitised paper or directly into the wet chemicals as they are applied (wet into wet).
The Cyanotype process was developed by Sir John Herschel in the 1840’s and shortly after used by the pioneering female early photographer Anna Atkins. A method of photography using sunlight without the use of a camera.
Symbolism: The lupin flower stands for imagination, admiration, and overall happiness. Whether given as a gift or grown in your garden, the lupin brings the energy of inner strength to recover from trauma. When given as a gift, it tells the receiver that a positive outlook leads to the discovery of new opportunities.
