This is the first year we’ve had hellebore and with our very warm recent weather, they started blooming earlier this week. I really like the way the buds curl down, and the one just opening in front caught my eye.
I used Topaz Detail Soft Looking, followed by the Nik Color Efex Pro 4 Midnight filter to give the dark effect I was looking for. I then used several textures – Aventura from French Kiss Textures, and lower opacity layers of Turtle Shell and Villa Adriana from Flypaper Textures.
