I get some fairly... interesting promotional emails from vendors from time to time. Usually I delete and move on, but I need to to share this one. For it involves "the only hand painted leaf studio/manufacturer in the world
". Apparently, they collect leaves. Then they paint on them:"We are confident you will be impressed by the beauty and detailed quality of our leave paintings. Preservation of leaf and painting on it are life time guaranteed because of the 60 multi-channel working procedures that creates this unique artistic work. Each leaf painting is in oil and aquarelle and placed in a 10.2” x 11.8” frame. All Shuiqin leaves are hand painted, therefore not prints.
" (Emphasis theirs. Of course.)
Ah, yes. I seem to remember DaVinci writing (backwards) often of his 60 multi-channel working procedures. Such a breakthrough in artistic technique! It's all very exciting.
