The rose bushes went through a slight lull but it seems blooms are back in business today.

Sometimes when thinking about colour and form I become inquisitive about seeing something differently in an unexpected colour. That got me thinking about blue and lilac ladybirds. Here is the blue version.

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 now that I have gotten over my pre-conceived notions.
