Here is a little, quick attempt at tulip tree blossoms that I put together this morning. This is a 4 x 5 piece of dark card stock.
And here is the same piece with just a bit of blending with a tissue.
I'm not sure which one I like better, but I am pretty pleased with this 15 minute try.
I am still enamored with pears since taking the Pear-ology class with Martha Lever, and as a matter of fact I have a still life class with the Jackson Civic Art Association on Wednesday. We are encouraged to bring some pieces to arrange with a clip-on lamp for illumination and shadows. I've been playing with the arrangement of some pears I purchased yesterday.
|I love how the texture shows up in this one.|
|I used a watercolor filter in Photoshop on this one.|
|I used the posterize adjustment layer in Photoshop on this one.|
|I used a flash on this one.|
I've already done my treadmill workout this morning but haven't eaten yet. The entire time I was arranging these pears, my stomach was growling like crazy. I am thinking I might be wise to go to Michael's later today and get some artificial fruit to use in my still life class and eat these. Yum!
I am hoping to find lots of time to play in my art room today and am wishing you that same opportunity.
