Bidens pilosa print

I have used Biden’s pilosa to imprint onto the watercolour paper. Bidens pilosa is a plant that is an introduced plant from South America & has since become a well known weed, also known at Cobblers Pegs & farmer’s friend among other things. It’s leaves are edible & I have found they give a lovely pale green natural dye. So a weed that has many uses. Luckily for me it grows in my front yard as well as up & down the street, so I have a plentiful supply for my artwork.
