Fun With Black-eyed Susans

Black-eyed Susan_1Today I am sharing with you some of the photographs that I’ve been editing over the last week. I enjoyed my time converting these images into what appears to be paintings or drawings. I think the yellow flowers really stand out in these representations.

Black-eyed Susan_2The first photograph is the flower from yesterday’s post “13 Petals“. The other two images are ones that I’ve been holding back so that I could get them just right before converting them into the artistic versions.

Black-eyed Susan_3I still like to draw every now and then and I would say that colored pencil is one of my favorite mediums to use. The fact that I can change my photographs to look similar to one of my hand drawn works really intrigues me. It has been quite awhile since I picked up a pencil and a sketch book, but I see it happening in the near future. I have included a link to yesterday’s post and the original photographs of the two new flower images in a gallery for comparison purposes. Enjoy!!
