Cup of blues

by | Blog

mouse-over for before view.

It’s no secret that I love my blue hydrangeas, unfortunately I have trouble growing them, they all seem to revert to pink unless I sprinkle Aluminium Sulphate around the plant and I’m hopeless at remembering to do this, the result, pink hydrangeas this year! So while I was out on one of my daily walks I appropriated a small sprig of this beautiful blue specimen which was growing over a fence by the footpath,  put it in a tiny cup and shot from directly above.

Processing as always was quick….
Kale @ Overlay 100% Masked gently from the flower. This layer was turned blueish using a hue/saturation adjustment at the following settings: with Colourise checked, Hue 225 Saturation 14 Lightness +24
Cobalt Cloud @ Overlay 77% (this is one of my favourite textures for giving a blue tone)
And that’s it 🙂

Kale is from the Ethereal Painterly Pack, Cobalt Cloud is from the Summer Painterly Pack
