Red Bougainvillea Impressionism

On Cannery Row in Monterey, California,  there is a large hotel on the shoreline with a beautiful red bougainvillea growing across the entrance to the lobby. This is my photograph of it in an impressionist digital art style. The photograph was taken in the late fall. By Christmas time I made a soft dreamy look to the picture. It has an impressionism style that  brings out the reds and golden yellows that makes one happy to look at it. I hope you enjoy the colors and flowers too!

This is my original rose photograph taken a couple of years ago. I added several layers of textures and paint effects.  Then I added the butterflies and their trails.  Butterflies fly over the garden flowers every spring, so it wasn’t very difficult to imagine little butterfly trails following them fluttering from one flower to another. The colors in this picture are quite vibrant and cheerful.
