Textured Violet

Posted by Magrat (Nordhausen, Germany) on 15 March 2010 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

One of my first tries of using my own textures...

This African Violet has a texture I created out of one of my winter photos, showing snowmelt...

Nice that you made your own texture. I have a lot of brushes and textures I have made over the years but.. they almost seem old to me now. I always like to make fresh :) This flower, very fresh, you made good use of 'my' color hehehe.

Your images have a great life force. Whether because of the color. The light. The composition. The point of view ... You have a photographic look fantastic!
Today offers us an excellent macro violet. grain that gives it the force of a woodcut. Perfect. I like it!

Guten Abend Magrat,
jaaaaaaa, von diesem Bild bin ich mehr als begeistert. Die Farben sind mehr als großartig und brilliant. Es ist eine wunderschöne kreative Darstellung. Wir hatten beide den gleichen Gedanken heute. Aber ich entschied mich für ein anderes Bild für den heutigen Tag. Dafür setze ich für morgen meine Kreation ein, die ich schon längere Zeit in Betrachtung zog. Ich konnte mich nicht entscheiden, es heute einzusetzen. Für diese Darstellung gebe ich Ihnen 10 Sterne ********** Diesen Anblick genieße ich noch eine Weile. Es sind meine Lieblingsfarben. Ich wünsche Ihnen einen schönen Abend. Liebe Grüße, Christel

15 Mar 2010 8:06pm

@Christel: Hallo Christel, noch einmal vielen Dank und ich freue mich, daß Ihnen dieses Bild so gut gefällt... Ich habe Ihre Lieblingsfarben getroffen, das ist ja toll! :) Liebe Grüße. Magrat

k@ from Paris, France

Like chalk... Love the sensation i have some on the fingers in my eyes (yes, i touched your photo with those fingers of mine, in my eyes ! ;) Luminous image, Magrat and a little bit erotic, if I dared to say so (done, i dared ! ;))

15 Mar 2010 10:17pm

@k@: How dare you! Haha.. no, just kidding.. :)) Now that I'm not any longer over and over blushed I wanna say ... yes. You're right. ;) Well - I think mother nature has got a somehow limited repertoire... Thanks for this great comment, Karine... :)
