Another shot from the Elwood beach shoot with Caroline Gorka. Another bird shot too! :)

This one refused to take on blue and aqua tones, and I had originally intended, and went into reds and crimsons instead. What the piece wants, the piece gets.

    LOL. I agree, a piece takes on its own persona and demands we respect it! GORGEOUS work, Andrew – love, love, love.

  • And we just have to respect it, or we end up in all kinds of awful places! Thanks so much Colleen, if anyone was going to understand this, it was you!! :)

    Oh, so I realise now that > put in front of a quote doesn’t work the same as in forums! Sorry, Andrew – I hope you get my gist!

  • Haha I definitely did my friend :)
