Two Monstera Leaves – Original Wet Cyanotype
This beautiful Cyanotype of two Monstera leaves is an original one of a kind work of art.
It is created, using the wet cyanotype process, on beautiful Bockingford watercolour 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.
Monstera adansonii, also known as the Swiss cheese plant, is a unique flowering plant with beautiful heart-shaped leaves. Because of the oval-shaped holes or fenestrations dappled throughout the leaf, it’s sometimes called swiss cheese plant.
