A few mornings ago I woke up to a lovely surprise. The mysterious cactus-y plant that we had found on the side of the road and planted, and which had grown like crazy, had a giant flower pressed against the bathroom window.
A bit of research revealed it was the legendary dragon fruit flower that only blooms for one night, and glows in the light of the moon. I caught it as it was starting to close in the morning and took a photo using the phone.
I decided to use this as a base image for a number of experiments. I first of all played with the image in photoshop, first removing colour and then increasing the contrast on the black and white image:
I then played around with different filters. Cutout:
stamp (setting 12):
… and fresco:
and finally played with the fresco and made it duotone with Pantone warm red C:
