Stopping For Just A Sip Of Nectar

Diane Schuster

Shady Cove, United States

Artist's Description

A Swallowtail Butterfly stops for a quick sip of nectar while flying over the orange lilies in my garden.
This is a compilation of two images both of which were taken in my garden in Southern Oregon.
I combined the two images by using layers in Photoshop CS6 and I sandwiched a layer of texture in between them and that layer was selectively applied with a white soft paint brush. I also applied a second layer of texture on top of the image by using the same technique. The final image had a little burning for shadows and a little contrast applied and then the Photoshop Oil Painting filter was applied lightly.
