Texture Thursday: Spring Tulips

Yesterday, I came across someone’s Flickr photo of a tulip with the caption “tulips should bloom year round.” I concur. They are one of my favorite to photograph chiefly due to the thicker petals and the way the colors graduate from the bottom to the top on the petals. These have been sitting on the kitchen table for about a week and are starting to dry out and brown, making them quite inviting for a texture application. The texture used here is from the Shadowhouse Creations blog. Jerry Jones, aka Skeletalmess, has a rich treasure of textures available from his blog. His blog has over 3,000,000 views and there is no question for why. Hope everyone has had a good week and are looking forward to a St. Paddy’s weekend.

  1. Beautiful composition. Very effective use of the texture. I have used a few of Jerry Jones textures. I found his tips and samples useful learning to create my own.

    • Thanks! And yeah, he has so much more than textures there. I think I’m about to jump into the texture building. Using them on photos has fit like a glove for me, and now I’m starting to take extra time on shoots to grab pure textures.

  2. Thanks, Cyndi, for the wonderful comment. It’s funny that you say that because my wife has been making offhand comments about me making something for the wall in bathroom, and I had that in mind when processing this one.

  3. Looks like a painting, nice job! I missed this last Texture Thursday, dang it! Funny that you mentioned that you are thinking of jumping into making your own textures, I have started to capture textures for my own use too! 😀
