Inspired by... a wild rose

To me, there is nothing "common" about roses.

I love them.

They make me happy... {sigh}

This beauty was the perfect "model" for Kim's newest texture, Felicity.  It also worked well for my attempt at this week's "Beyond" challenge: creating a painterly effect.



Featuring Klassen's sienna texture. Soft Light blend.



Attempting to create a "painterly affect"

This time I applied a cyan filter (50%) and then sienna texture, multiply blend mode 81%


Wild_Rose_Felicity_Gradient This beautiful result appeared after applying a gradient map and then Kim's felicity texture, soft light blend mode, 100%

  1. Great starting image and then all your fun playing shows some great results. My fave is probably the first one - I like that composition best and the colors are just yummy.

  2. Love that first shot... wild roses are so beautiful in their simplicity!

  3. These are all so beautiful! I think the first is my favorite.
