I’ve been messing about having fun with online art filters applied to images taken by me – it really is the lazy girl’s approach to artistic design, and I really love some of the crazy effects on what is otherwise a standard photograph.
Here is one particular orangey-pink flower head nestled comfortably within its own green leaves, shown in four different guises ranging from nearly normal to weird and wonderful 🙂
The house I grew up in from the age of ten, where my mum and dad still live for now, and a view of the surrounding countryside – probably the most permanant place in my life to date 🙂

A fun art filter livens up the mundane reality of photographing London’s public transport system, whether you choose to travel by tube, by bus, or by rented bicycle 🙂

Playing about some more with finger-painting in Photoshop – another fun fantasty flower from my imagination. I’m finding it really relaxing to mess about with, so be prepared to be inundated with multiple experimental digital images for the next while 🙂
Bold thick lines of colour finger-painted freehand across the page, blended and smudged with thinner lines, creating little rivulets of interest in my abstract digital design 🙂

‘Creativity requires courage’ – Henri Matisse
It’s all too easy to stick confidently to what we know, always playing it safe, ensuring we never risk failure by never trying anything new in the first place. It’s never easy to feel vulnerable and uncertain about how to do something new, especially as we get older and already know how to do so much in life, but it’s often oh-so-worth it to learn to be curious, be creative, be courageous all over again ❤ 🙂
One Liner Wednesday
Since first shakily trying my hand (well, my finger actually) the other day at a rather disastrous digital drawing using the very simplistic Microsoft Paint and my laptop’s basic trackpad, I’ve been thinking about experimenting with some slightly more sophisticated software, so my husband has kindly bestowed upon me the gift of trying out his Photoshop to see how I got on, and I must admit I’ve had great fun tonight finger painting a flower using a simple brush tool, a mixer brush tool, and a smudge tool.
It’s a bit rough and ready but I’m really, really happy with the end result for my first attempt and can see me exploring Photoshop further – I might even have to get hold of a drawing tablet and stylus to see how it feels to draw with that, too! 🙂
