A Study of Life in Stillness

Once again the International Garden Photographer of the Year’s Still Life competition has rolled around and once again, I’ve attempted another Cotan-inspired photographic image.  This year all the blossoms were cultivated by my own hands in the back garden.  And in order to imitate the look of an actual 16th-century painting, I’ve added a painterly texture.  I’m still hopeful that one day, I’ll get it right.
