Trying to get a feel for the plant within it's meadow setting. Camera was resting on a beanbag and fired using a remote switch. A small silver reflector mounted on the lens was used to throw some light back into the shadows of the plant.

A very fine image Mike, I went over to Marden after you and Clive left Hothfield, boy are there a lot of buttercups to deal with. I managed a few images though.

There is an art of composing, colour balance and the use of a dominent element and other interesting lines and shapes to create a painting. This image is a good example of studying a creative work using soft pastal colours to produce a stunning work. Well done.
