I loved the detail in this daisy, but it only opens when it's had an adequate amount of sunlight. I thought the outer petals, with the complimentary yellow and purple, were lovely, so captured it that way! It seemed a shame to leave it against white so I applied a motion blur to a complimentary texture, lightened it so it would not compete with the flower, overlaid it and painted most of it off the flower.
