Theme ; Challenge Take A Word / SEPIA

Take ONE Sepia-toned

Take TWO Sepia-Toned

Like most things in Photoshop, there are probably a half dozen ways to simulate a sepia tone image but I never knew that sepia was simply ink extracted from a cuttlefish (the European Common Cuttlefish (Sepia officinalis)), a cephalopod closely related to octopuses and squid!

beautiiful, seasons greetings to you and see in the New Year. Cheers

Amazing that the same pieces in different shades give a different feeling, Rian, the top one such warm colours - hope but the other to me - sadness & loss! Just my thoughts of your beautiful art!
So you will be 'empty-nesters' when your daughter 'flies' the nest, hope she's close by.
I wish you a wonderful Christmas and 2012, Rian, thank you for leaving lovely comments this year!!
See you next year!

I take my hat off to you, Rian, that every time I open up your blog you have learned something new and put it into practice, making another gorgeous piece. I love this layer upon layer approach and agree with Judy that there are many emotions woven into this one.

I too, hope your daughter remains nearby for you.

Wishing you a lovely Christmas and happy and healthy new year, my friend.
