Standing waiting at the car wash we were under a canopy of fresh Spring blossoms. The car wash was pretty grim. The blossoms were pristine, and no-one but me so much as glanced at them. I took a few photos and then transformed one into this on my iPad. The trickiest bits were the stamens that had to be done painstakingly line by line with a 3 px brush. The background was relatively easy, broad, blurred strokes with a finger. I added the photo effect “hope” because it seems to me the every year the blossoms bring hope of another beautiful Summer here in BC.
