I'm not at all artistic, but thought I'd have a play.

Hi Gary,
Everyone is artistic in one way or another and this photo art is addictive...
Like how you have made the flower stand out....how did you do it???
Being Yorkshire born and bred...do tell where you are from...

Kind regards Patricia Kay

A lovely double hibiscus! I have these in my backyard and they really add a lot of color and attract bees and butterflies.

Object was to render a "product display" version.

Cut out the flower and stem and copied to another layer. Did a heavy gausian blur on the background and set a curves A/L to reduce the greens and bring up the red glow around the flower.

Added a soft bevel and emboss to the flower. And some smart sharpen to bring up the natural texture in the petals.

Changed the stamen to more yellow, since the ones in my back yard are more yellow.

Thanks for the lovely photo, Patricia!

Painted Hibiscus.
Simplified image first in Photoshop using facet filter. Used Impasto and Diffuse Blur brushes in Painter. Smeared background with smeary oil cloner. Now, I really have to get back to my paying job!
