I'm currently experimenting with processing for some botanical prints I'm working on.

Thanks for looking,

Anne

Dreamy.....I'd like to hear more about your botanical prints. Sounds like an interesting project. I just did a little book of wildflowers of Maine.

wonderful soft focus and processing.
Somehow I would prefer something blue green or yellow in the background rather than the flesh colour. But that is, of course, a matter of taste. Hope you don't mind

No, I don't mind at all - I'm trying to get a feel for what works with these so any critique is welcome. I'm working with some colour theory from my oil painting days Smile

I've uploaded a version with cooler tones for you.

Anne



Thanks to everyone who has stopped by. I appreciate you.
