Sunflower Petals Of Flame Against The Sky by 

This is a painted sunflower that I planted in my garden this summer. I love these bright and cheerful blossoms so like flames in there design and color.
I took the original image of the painted sunflower and I added two textures by using layers in Photoshop CS6. By using a black layer mask and white as my paint color, I selectively added the textures to the sunflower. I increased the texture of the sunflower center by using Vivezia and then used some photoshop brushes to put the birds in the sky and as a fun touch the little fairy on the sunflower petal.

I’m a 66 year old retired grandmother that loves photography. I love being out in nature and love lots of color, so Autumn is my favorite time of year.
Forests and forest light, waterfalls, flowers and insects are also some of my favorite subjects to photograph.
