Pflanzengarten in Bad Schandau, Germany, August 2012
Texture can be also the flowering silver thistle. I like the combination of the lilac – purple reflection and the green – yellowish shades of the background. The Nature is the master painter, they say – it comes up with so many tones and shades, so many beautiful combinations. One can learn a lot about coloring only by walking in a garden, in a summer sunny day. Cloudy or rainy days are good too, because the colors of the flowers seem brighter and droplets of water on delicate petals and leaves are good ingredients for a great picture.
