Clematis and Ladybird Floral Art

The experimentation continues. Moved from one to multiple gradients and some selective blurring. Then just for fun I added a contrasting colour – in the form of a ladybird. Photoshop certainly is enjoyable┬ánow that I have gotten over my pre-conceived notions.

Graphic gradients

Every artist would like to create something unique. Something special and memorable that draws one nearer and is intriguing. In my quest to find that special something to make my images unique I keep experimenting. Today’s experiment is with radial gradient fills. Some of them I like, some of them I don’t but nothing ventured means nothing gained.

Rosebud Romance

Bought some flowers for my neighbour for Chinese New Year – yellow and red roses – but quickly had to take a few shots and try a few effects before I gave them away – shhh!
