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.



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.
