Something old, something new
I found this clematis photo, taken in April of 2009 at the Oregon Coast Garden Center. (Loved that place. So sorry to see it close a few years ago.)
I knew I wanted my original photograph less vibrant, paler pink than it was originally, and so began experimenting with layers, masks, toning, painterly effects, etc. I wanted it painterly, but not too painterly, if that makes any sense.
I'm pleased, this morning, with the result.
April and May, my two favorite months in the Pacific Northwest. Followed closely by September and October. Wishing you cool breezes, fresh air, and lovely flowers.
