Lightroom and Color Efex Pro combined to make the most of a botanical study.
Some work in Photoshop to replicate the effect of a coloured drawing, or pastel colour painting on a white surface.
A deep single colour and the geometric lines.
The image shows a flowering vine growing along a solid timber upright. The timber is painted black and hence provides quite a contrast.
