For Photo Art Friday this week, Bonnie suggested we create a "painterly" image. I used this photo I took earlier in the week when I visited my favorite little town of Occoquan, VA. I needed a flower fix! They always have pretty flowers blooming here and there on their quaint, shop-filled streets. I chose this image because it had a dark background and I thought it might be more dramatic...I was happy with the effect and how the sun-soaked buds pop. I used Bonnie's "Painterly Texture" on this image, at Soft Light/32%. I also used an old book cover texture to give it even more of a canvas appearance. I LOVE to go in search of old, public domain book covers on places like Wikimedia Commons...they make wonderful textures in PSE!
I'm also linking this to Leanne's Flower Art Friday, which I'm happy to be able to participate in this week. Happy Friday, everyone!
