Well, at least I think it is a snapdragon. My flower vocabulary is shallow, and I have no excuses since my mother has worked in a plant and flower nursery for over twenty-five years. I’m not sure if these flowers have bigger plans for the spring, but they were about the size of a quarter (2.5cm). Spring is definitely coming full on. It seems to be a bit early this year and I think partly because we had such a wet and mild winter. I haven’t worked with flowers much, this being maybe the 5th or 6th flower I’ve posted on the blog. But this year I swore I would set aside some flower time. I had big plans to some gardens this weekend but the weather app is showing black clouds with tiny lightning bolts for the next week. Ugh.
Processing Notes: The texture used in this one is simple linen I’ve used before. Since I’ve really liked this texture, I had made it a “pattern” in Photoshop. I made a pattern layer with it and set it to soft-light blend mode. I then selectively masked out part of the texture on the flower, and dropped the contrast globally. Cheers.
*EDIT* – Well, the consensus and after a Google look, it seems to be a wild daffodil or narcissus and definitely not any variant of a snapdragon.
