Central Valley Homesick

Just going through some of my images from my trip to California in April.. and found this image of the Vineyard next to my Aunt Beth’s house.  Reminds me of the wide open places in the central valley, where you can see forever.  So pretty.

I used some new overlay images I got for signing up for the newsletter at ‘lovethatshot.com‘.

The thing with overlaying textures, it’s a bit like painting with oils.  You add one over the top of another, change blending modes, dodge a little, paint a little, mask a little, change the hue or burn a little.  It’s a constant push and pull of the image until you look up and there it is, just what you had in your head when you started.  It’s a bit of magic, really.
