This is my latest collage and so far the most complex. Many, many layers later… Please click on it to see a larger version as some of the detail is hard to see in this smaller version.
The dragonfly – a grasshawk – has been handpainted and then been combined with the background.
Here’s the dragonfly on my blog
I’ve used lots of textures this time, including some of my own:
Absynthium Stock Flame Textures
Fudgegraphics Grunge Nebula
Princess of Shadows Vintage Grunge
I have also used several of my own, including one of sea glass pebble, and sand, a photograph of the breakers at Southwold, a cloud picture etc. etc.
It was a more difficult picture to work at as the lighting needed to be right to make you feel like you’re looking at a storm without all the detail washing out.
The title is inspired of course by Shakespeare’s Tempest.
