Bowl of Habaneros (Digital Woodcut)

This is the third (and last) version of this image.  This began with a bowl of habaneros that I photographed last week at The Food Project (our CSA).  I had to edit and simplify the background so that I could square the circle.  Yesterday I published the posterized version.  I created tonight's version with Painter's woodcut effect.  I think I like this version best.

Bowl of Habaneros (Posterized)


Yesterday I posted a photo of a bowl of habanero peppers. I took the original photo at Long Hill Gardens during a pick up for our CSA, The Food Project. I edited the original photo to simplify the background and cropped the image to square the circle. Tonight's post is another version of the same image, this time with Painter's posterized effect added.

Bowl of Habaneros

Every week, we pick up our farm share at the Food Project, which distributes at Long Hill Garden. This week, I had a chance to take some pictures. I got a nice overhead shot of this bowl of habanero peppers. For this composition, I decided to square the circle, but there were some distractions in the background, so tonight I used Painter's digital pastel to make a simplified background.

Bright Mums at Long Hill (Edited)

Here's another photo of flowers from last week's trip to Long Hill Garden. I think these are mums. I liked the bright colors, so I took a few pictures. Tonight I used Painter's digital pastel to do a little cleanup, and then cropped the image to get this composition.

Bright Little Flowers

I saw these bright little flowers on Thursday, growing in a long row at Long Hill Gardens.  I love the way they look so I took some pictures, but I don't know what kind of flowers they are.  Anyway, tonight I cropped the original photo to get this composition.

At Dane Street Beach

This is a photo that I took last week at Dane Street Beach, here in Beverly, MA. The morning had been foggy and if you look closely, you can see that the fog is still burning off. This photo turned out pretty well, straight out of my iPhone, but tonight I used iPhoto to crop it to get this composition.

Apple Tree at Long Hill (Edited and Posterized Photo)

Here's another photo from last week's trip to see apple trees at Long Hill Gardens, here in Beverly, MA. It was exciting to see all the apples, and so I took a lot of pictures. I cropped this image out of a larger photo because I liked the way the apples are clustered together on the branch. When I got the image into my computer, I could see that the leaves had been munched on -- and so had the apples! But I decided to try to salvage the image anyway. I used Painter's digital pastel to do some cleanup, and when I was finally finished, did some selective posterizing. This took longer than I wanted it to, but I think it was worth it. I might try to paint this as part of my "branches" series.
