A little background experiment I have been working on recently. I am trying to use more texture in my work. I am experimenting with scanning in relief rubbings and also messing around with photos of my plants in Photoshop. I got the "bark" rubbings from some textured wallpaper from B&Q :). My husband bought me Photoshop CS5 for my birthday and am loving the effects that it allows you to create. The next job on my list is to develop some characters. Looking forward to trying out all the different types of brushes and hoping to get some lovely line drawings.
