Harekeke, New Zealand Flax. I feel connected with it and just took a swag of photos on our recent walks. More coming up.
#471 Golden Ending
This one like the earlier Circle was one where I found the final image by deleting layers, and also by changing the original colour from a heavy black to this golden colour, which really suits this particular subject, this particular flax that is, the variety of the remnants after seeding is enormous. Some are very black. The exploring was satisfying!
This one is printed to suit a 10 x 8 frame and has collage of (treated) dried flax material.
