Red Tulips emerging from a painted canvas just as Spring emerges slowly from Winter, a little bit at a time until like magic the season has changed and there are blooming bulbs everywhere.
Original background image was taken in my garden in Southern Oregon. A single layer of texture by Painted Textures was placed as a layer on top of the tulips. The texture was selectively removed to make it appear as if the tulips were being painted on a canvas. Final image was processed in Topaz Simplify.
