November: Book of Hours

There is wind where the rose was,
Cold rain where sweet grass was,
And clouds like sheep
Stream o'er the steep
Grey skies where the lark was.

Nought warm where your hand was,
Nought gold where your hair was,
But phantom, forlorn,
Beneath the thorn,
Your ghost where your face was.

Cold wind where your voice was,
Tears, tears where my heart was,
And ever with me,
Child, ever with me,
Silence where hope was.
---Walter de la Mare

Another one done! I think this is my favorite so far! This time I wanted to work on layering transparent textures. Also, this is what happens when you watch Twin Peaks while making art :-)

I set myself this project to teach myself photo manipulation, so if you've got a second I'd love to hear your feedback and comments!

Here are my incredible sources:

Thanks for using my stock; I love seeing my photos as part of totally different subject matter. There is so much intricate detail in this digital manipulation of yours, my eyes just keep wandering around and around. The only part I find a bit distracting is the bright white light coming through the cross-shaped window, competing for attention with the more interesting glowing orb/face. Your technique has definitely been improving lately, so keep it up!
