Fading Leucodendron 2

Posted by

We are saying farewell to Leucodendron, who was perhaps just as beautiful dead as alive! :)

This is beautiful work, Barbara. The fading flower goes very well with fading colours and dull background. I really like it. The leaf/petal near stem on the bottom of the photo drags my eyes. I can't decide if I would clone it out or not, though.

Amazing how quickly it "thinned" out. Beautiful colors, textures and I love the reflected shine! Great "veining" as well.
