I’m not sure what kind of flower this is but I love the color and the shape, especially those spurs!

Thank you to Astrid and Celeste for letting me know this is an aquilegia (Columbine).

I processed this with Nik Color Efex 4 Glamour Glow and Topaz Simplify Oil Painting, with textures from Leslie NIcole’s French Kiss Textures (Cote D’Azure and Deco Verte).

    The strong purple is simply wonderful against the green, and your processing is superb! The flower, by the way, is a columbine (aquilegia).

  • Thank you so much for your kind words, Celeste, and for identifying the flower as well. I know that columbines have those spurs, but for some reason this didn’t look like a columbine to me.
