A Rose and a piece of Gold Leaf

I had intended going for a walk this morning and then having a wander round Glasgow by myself. It started off dull with a bit of a drizzle, so I changed plans and managed a different type of painting, using oils again, but limiting my time to 1 hour. Didn’t manage to get to Glasgow either, so no photos. I went out in the early evening to move my car and saw the leaves sparkling in the streetlight. It was difficult to get the colour balance right, so I used photoshop to layer two copies of the shot. Desaturated the top layer and used a layer mask to cut through locally and show the golden leaf. Simple!

A little bit of ‘shopping was done!
