Phyllis -

You do some really incredible work. I had to look a couple of times! Nice touch on the sunset to add the reflection on the window!

It's funny how you notice things in the altered image that you don't see in the original the first time. In your crayon version, the flowers out front stand out so much more, and I noticed the triangle hanging in the very front. I wonder if that was used to call people to dinner

Charity, your night version is very striking!

Pam, I wouldn't have thought of trying b+w. That looks very nice.

Phyllis The crayon is magnificent allows you to see the detail.

Charityk I agree with you a lighthouse is at it’s best at night and you captured that feeling.

Pam The sketch is brilliant !

All are beautiful! Thought I'd go with a just-before-night version called "Time for work".

Wow... Another image from "home": Mulkilteo Lighthouse. Been there many times.

This version is based on a creative tutorial at www.myJanee.com --
http://www.myjanee.com/tuts/paint4/city2.htm

To restore some of the line detail I went back to the original layer and placed a Threshold adjustment layer over it. I then created several individual layers, based on various threshold settings, which generated black-on-white silhouettes highlighting various "lined" portions of the image, e.g., handrails around the light, siding detail, widow sill detail, etc.

Portions of each of these black-on-white layers was merged into the main image by changing the blend mode from Normal to Multiply, then creating a layer mask, inverting it (CTRL+I), and finally using the tried-and-true airbrush technique (white on black layer mask) to gradually restore the line detail.

PHIL: Another wonderful pic to work with. Keep 'em coming.

PHYLLIS: Your "crayon" method is very cool. Have you described that technique before? (If so, I don't recall.)

CHARITY: Very nice touch on the 'fresco.' Really like this one.

Wow all neat stuff everyone, here is an attempt at a more "modern" art than I normally do, kind of moody.

Here is another more abstract colors, kind of a solaraization, not sure how I got here but was tweaking some sliders.

Pam, your sketch is absolutely superb!

Bill, excellent dawn or dusk look, complete with fog! Good job on the light as well.

Danny, clean and crisp...really brings out those flowers! No, I haven’t described the crayon sketch look, though I’ve done it on about three minis I think. Next time I will keep track of the steps and let you know how to do it, since I can’t recall exactly.

Lacto, a real trip! You really must get more sleep.

Alan, both nice experiments in light and color! I think your night version should show the light turned on, though, don’t you? Wouldn’t want an accident!

Charity, great night view, and I really like the fresco one too. First time in a while that I’ve seen someone used fresco so successfully. I will have to remember to try it more often.

Phyllis
