I took the background at Kingston Lacy House in Dorset the last time I visited the UK and I took a picture of Nicki in front of a white background here in Australia. I drew the flowers and inked them up before scanning them into photoshop. Once in Ps I coloured in the flowers in a tattoo style. I placed the tattoo onto her body using the Displacement Map on the Distort filter.

    A really expressive creation. I love how the flow of all the art on and of the body, flows with the art in the background and pillows. Perfect blending.

  • Thanks Ken. It’s always a worry when I have a lot of detail in the background. It can so easily look too busy. Thanks for the lovely comment.
