Happy bloom day to all you gardeners and today I’m presenting flowers in sepia tones.
I’m very interested in doing more flower studies and this series will be in sepia which I’ve also been attracted to as a photography medium outside of black and white studies. I think the subject matter ends up becoming more detailed studies in tonality, texture, shapes and light to dark contrasts.
Wild orchids in the back yard. Phillipine ground orchid (Spathoglottis plicata)
Beautiful Ginger blooms, shell ginger (Curcuma rhabdota)
A double hibiscus bloom
Euphorbia blooms, Euphorbia Splendens
A double red hibiscus done in sepia.
These sepia studies offer a different take to the black and white studies, I think they add a more organic nature to pure black and white studies which are more graphic in nature.
