Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this piece. I started with Matt's still life photo, following his instructions, but then incorporated the shading and cross-hatching instructions before adding water colour.

I have trouble staying away from making the colour take over from the ink... I'd like the leaves to be darker and richer.

Yay! You've done such a great job! I though Matts photo was quite boring, but you've really bought the photo to life and your ink and wash is far more interesting!
