Darkened the background bricks and the green shadows; warmed the yellow of the shutter and moved from blue to violet to pink in the petals.  


Cannot think of a title other than
Another Hydrangea! ha ha

I think I will do this again in my more traditional way without the line work, although the line work does give it a clean, illustrative look I like for a change.

Wow Rhonda- love this look. I have a couple of those Elegant Writers. You are making me want to pull mine out and give them a try. Hope you have a lovely holiday.

I think this is truly my favorite of your hydrangeas to date, Rhonda. I love the addition of line to sharpen any image.

I like the look of this technique. Even if you don't use it all the time, it's another 'tool' in your toolbox. Nice work!
