The Photoscapes Unleashed Series - Chihuly

Before ~ Dale Chihuly Glass Sculpture - I shot this at an exhibit at the DeYoung Museum about a year ago or so. I love his artwork and this particular photo so I thought I would play around with it and see what transpires. I have also decided to give my new art obsession a name. It will be called the Photoscapes Unleashed Series.

After - I applied the watercolor settings along with the swirl and pinch applications and added the warm color tones. Here is the result.

All I can say is "WOW"! It is like lava inside a volcano ( well, I've never seen lava inside a volcano but it is how I imagine it looks! ).
