Primal Sight


This is my entry for the Sunday Postcard Art Challenge where the theme this week is "Eyes". I wanted to create a primal or feral look to this image ; a blending of human and botanica. I used a fashion clipping, scanned flowers, feathers, raffia and artist papers for the effect. Multiple layers of artistic filters in Photoshop.
