Textured Orchid

Posted by
Barbara Kile (Ft. Worth, United States) on 19 January 2011 in Art & Design and Portfolio.

2 textures applied from Totally Rad's Dirty Pictures. Some texture painted off the orchid. I loved the graceful curves in the petals of the orchid.

Your composition and tender tones are smashing. And this is simply beautifully processed.
This is one of my favorites of your work.

Japanalia from Yokohama, Japan

One of the most photogenic flowers when it comes to creating things using them! You show us here how beautifully it can be explored. (We'll be going to the international orchid show in Tokyo in late February...I can hardly wait for this event; we missed it last year.)

@Japanalia: I'm still making images of my orchid plant. Can't wait to see what you capture! (I'm assuming you can take your camera?)
