Tiled images of Leaves

Recommended Posts

In my recent tutorial, Creating tiles using Affine, especially of Leaves, I explained how to create tileable images using dead leaves (or any other similar object). I show here a selection of such tiled images, with four such tiles grouped to produce a seamless image. 

Before the tiled images, here is an example of a real patch of leaf litter taken just by holding the camera vertically of the woodland floor:

This is an example of a composite image of leaves to recreate a leaf-litter-like tiled pattern:

The following four images are each based on a single tree species, using about twenty leaves of different colours.

Firstly English Maple Acer campestre.

Next Cherry Prunus avium.

Now a garden shrub Guelder Rose Viburnum opulus.

And finally a strange Chinese relative of the conifers, the Ginkgo, Ginkgo biloba.

I have used these to form the basis of a set of table mats.
