Photo Art Friday: nature’s abstractions

This week Bonnie’s challenge was “nature’s abstraction/s”. Here are some of my abstractions from nature:

TT-flowers

Kim’s challenge for this week’s Texture Tuesday was to use an image of flowers and at least one of her textures. I have used her texture “peony” for this and reduced the opacity to 43%.

TT-tree-mallow-w

The tree is called a tree mallow – in Turkey, where I photographed this, no-one seemed to know the correct name of any of the flowers, trees or shrubs and when I asked what this I was told it was some sort of hibiscus. Then I saw it in the botanical gardens in Singapore with a label! It flowers in the winter and is really beautiful.

Flower Art Friday 8 June 2012

For Flower Art Friday’s 7th challenge I chose to use an image of a painting I did combined with a photo of the same plant – allium – I can never resist those wonderful fat purple flowering heads of the onion family

Flower Art Friday 11 May

I couldn’t decide which version I liked best so I have included 3. It is a banana flower.

This is the original. The flowers slowly metamorphose into a hand of bananas
