First Oak Tree

My first cyanotype, It is over exposed I know, I don't yet understand why the leaves bled together and the grass is washed out in one spot.

I inverted this picture " www.lomography.com/homes/wv_cactus/albums/1795308-first-try… " and printed it on a sheet of Ink Jet Transparency Film and set it in the overcast sun for 90 min.

    It looks great! Was this done on watercolor paper?

    Yes, I used "Strathmore Series 500". Unfortunately I used the Improved Cyanotype Formula which acts like a indicator for additives, the emulsion turned a dark green over night so it has harmful additives in the paper. It will be good to learn on though..........
