I was reading something yesterday which mentioned the words “ancient sun” and for some reason that phrase rang a bell for me and I was drawn to create an image of an ancient sun. A while back I was fiddling with a new plug-in, it’s free but diabolical to use, and got an image of the sun which didn’t actually appear in the photo I was editing, instead it turned up on its own and overrode the original image. I actually liked the sun image and yesterday played with it, mostly on PicMonkey but also with the Redfield Fractalius plug-on I’ve just installed. Firstly I added layers of the original sun photo, then added in one of a sunset here in North Cyprus, more layers of the original sun photo, lots of playing with the “paint” gizmo on PIcMonkey and finally used the Basic Edits to tone up the colours. And here’s the result: An Ancient Sun.
