Cyanotype on Watercolour Paper
During lockdown I made “Cyanotype” sunprints in my back garden. Cyanotype is an early photographic process dating back to the 1800s, pioneered by Anna Atkins who used the technique for botanical books. I coat my paper in the dark, and then place flowers on top in the sunshine. Where the sun can penetrate the paper turns blue upon development. Cyanotype is extremely robust and you can expect these prints to last more than 100yrs.
These petunias I grew revealed hearts, that were clearly visible when exposed to UV light. It was like a message from Mother Nature in these lonely times. This is a small artwork that would suit many settings.
These are the petunias I grew and used.
