Dandelion days II

Second in a series celebrating the joyful days of summer spent lying down in a full of dandelion clocks. Modified to give a delicious painterly effect that is almost like a tapestry worked in shades of gold, this image offers itself as seamlessly to fabric as it does to an art print.

Cloudburst

An etheral moment of cloudburst that brings the other-worldly into the realms of camera focus; although I admit to having worked to bring this image back to something close to what I saw with my eyes. When I play with a photograph, the long-standing painter in me sets about the task much like I am used to doing with oils; working in layers to refind the colour and nuance that I know is there, dipping my “brush” into these effects to add and remove colour, tone and light just as I would do on a canvas.
