I was given a selection of freshly grown gerberas by our local growers Thornton Brothers Roses, of Thirlmere, to create some artwork for them. This artwork shown was the result of a many creations. The vivid colours of the flowers were so bright that I thought that this background of a rusty old veggie trough would be perfect. The day I photographed these, the light of a still clear winters day was perfect, with the shadows being sharp and crisp. Playing with the stems of the Gerberas and placing extra stems from spare flowers, added to the composition of the dancers in the outback. Their bodies were added using the photoshop paint brush. The moonlit sky set the outback scene.
NOTE: A copy of the original photo is included and is attached to the back of the artmount.
