Paint cans in wood, April 2022

Someone has dumped in the wood:
9 cans of paint
one stacking pot
a packet of noodles and stirfry mix
a cardboard coffee cup
a crisp packet

I took one photograph before I tidied it up and patched the gap in the hedge with sticks and branches. Grey paint on the sycamore stump, and all over the mottled bramble leaves and ferns that have been holding on since last summer. The photograph is being developed into a tessellated print which will serve as decorative endpapers for the moths book.

I am not sure if I can use the actual paint as a printing ink.

[update May 2022: The new shoots and leaves have covered over the remaining splashes of paint. Only if you look closely can you see where the paint was dumped]
