Textured still life with pitchers, hollyhocks and a painting in a chiaroscuro style.
This image was taken at a friend's house. I gathered hollyhocks from the garden.The arrangement was in a concave alcove and the room behind showed at the sides, so I used the texture at Normal blend mode to fill in the sides.
The original photograph was lightened and burned and dodged. I also used *Topaz Lab's Clarity filter to bring out details.
