    Default Little Weed

    I took this photo of a weed in my garden (I'm very good at weeds) as I liked the small attractive flowers.

    Ran it through Prisma on my mobile (Can't remember the filters name as I think it was the filter of the day) then imported it back into Xara, cut out a quick vector of the lower and applied a very slight contour with a transparency. Did the same again with the stigma & stamens in an effort to get the flower to come forward. Finally applied a elliptical cut out with a heavy feather.

    Don't do enough drawing these day, to busy since retiring, I couldn't go back to work, there's just not enough time in the day.

    Very nice, Egg. This reminds me of what they now call 'Mid-Century' Artwork. It has a lovely comic-book style.

    I wish I could name images when I process and save them on my iPhone. Little by little I am learning what filters do what but it is still a guessing game.

    I would call that weed a flower. But I am no gardener.

    Never give up. You will never fail, but you may find a lot of ways that don't work.
