Etude in Purple

Swanage, United Kingdom

Artist's Description

Etude – A piece composed for the development of a specific point of technique. A composition featuring a point of technique but performed because of it’s artistic merit. – Free Merriam-Webster Dictionary
The orchid was captured by myself on a Lumix DMC-TZ7, image was blended, textured and lit in Photoshop. Musical notes by French Kiss (Leslie Nichole), textures and overlays by French Kiss and myself.

As I worked on this piece I was also listening to a program on Marie Curie, a remarkable women, so badly treated by not only the scientific community but the media of the time as well. It appears she did not die of radium poisoning but of injuries sustained during her war service. She spent years working on the front line running mobile x-ray units to help wounded troops.
Dedicated to the memory of Marie Curie.
