This creation was made while visiting Costa Rica on a very hot day. The shade was very welcome indeed.

    Great tones and composition…Beautiful work Carolyn!
    Did you paint or is a capture treated?…

  • Hi Ana, glad you like it. This has been a painting for quite a while but I was never quite satisfied with it. I wanted to capture a feeling of the heat and warmth of the sun. After some post processing with Efex, I started getting the warmth I wanted. Then, more post processing with texture……….and it appeared to me. And so it goes! thanks for your comments.
