Azalea painting by willowdragon

Azalea painting

Day two of flower week ...... my azalea has flowered and has produced loads of gorgeous flowers that are in reality a gorgeous red colour. But ..... wanted to take that harshness out of them so played about with the colour. I also softened the shot a little and then put the watercolour filter over it.

Please view this large if you have the time :)
That looks really effective Al. Love it!
