Cosmos and Zinnias
CHOOSING PLEASING COLORS!
Forgive me for such a long time between posts. I never knew that a thunderstorm can create problems for your computer even though your computer is unplugged AND the lightning is just only too close for comfort.
Now that I'm back in business, I'll start with the above image.
I chose orange and yellow and a touch of lavender because the colors go so well together.
The pot is only about 4 inches high - so you see the entire image fits quite closely together.
After I shot the image I got it into my computer and made a layer out of one of my textured images and started adjusting the opacity of the textured layer. I only wanted enough of the textured image to show to give the final image an overall idea of being a painting.
Challenge for today:
Make sure you have adequate backup for all the images you have placed into your computer and make sure you keep the backup in a safe place!
