Coloured Pencils At Work

I like using different colouring in techniques depending on the subject – usually I use coloured pencils for simpler designs made up of larger blocks of colour, and keep my finer-pointed gel pens for smaller, more fiddly designs. And sometimes I even mix and match both on the same page.

Today I’ve got a really bad headache so am sitting on the sofa resting, and I chose to stick to my coloured pencils and simple designs on an A4-size page to keep me company – and overall I’m happy enough with the finished results! 🙂

Flowers: Fun with Filters

I’ve been playing about again with applying free online filters to some of my images – this beautiful bright colourful effect is from lunapic and is called ‘flowers’, so it seemed appropriate to give it a try!

So as well as being my take on Flower of the Day, together they also create my perfect fantasy garden for this week’s Hunt for Joy 🙂

Fun with Flowers

This afternoon I decided to have some fun with flowers and play about a bit with a few of my images, getting creative with deliberate camera shake and motion blur – I really like some of the results, they can look quite artistic and are certainly a little different to the standard sharp shots I prefer to take 🙂
