Phyllis - this look works very well with the image. I really like the subtle colors and the way the wagon first catches the eye.

Amanda, I was licking my chops when I opened up this pic..Love these old vehicles..Thanks for posting it..

Phyllis.. Great pastel version..I would not have considered this treatment for this pic..But it really works for me..

I Thought this old wagon deserved the limelight, so I did some heavy cropping..Then the usual sketch technique with coloration..I then used tablet for major layer masking and then some hand sketched outlining to bring out the wagon against the background..Then one of Bud's wooden matts..

Amanda - thanks for sharing this picture with us.
Phyllis - I like what you did with the colors/lighting on this!
OK - even though I am very tempted, I am not going to try that 'line art' I've been using too much of lately!
I wanted to get some 'older' feeling to this one ... used sepia, grain, texture..

Bill and Mikl, thanks for the nice comments..That was a really fun pic to work with..

Bill, your sepia treatment of this pic really made it look like a 1800's version..Really good use of sepia..

Great work on this one jerry. I love it.
BTW, wich one of Bud's frame did you use ?

Mikl..As you know, Bud's frames are really well suited for personnal tweeking as far as color is concerned..For this frame, I used "Bud's wooden mattes>blackwood matte" Then as the action was running, I adjusted hue/saturation to try to match the colors in the picture..When the action was finished, the color was not quite right, so I opened the wood layer and added a color overlay "light tan" then adjusted the opacity to allow the grain to show through..With Bud's actions, you have so many ways to get the colors right that even a Bozo like me can make them look good..

Hope this helps
Jerry

I'm glad y'all are enjoying the wagon. My son and I are going out there today to drop off our growing-too-large chicks...I'll see if I can get any other good photo-ops!!

Phyllis--Love the sketch! How did you do that?

Jerry--Bringing the focus down to just the wagon was a terrific idea. Wonderful interpretation and framing.

BillC--I like this! It really does feel old that way!

BillC sort of inspired me...old wagon, old cabin, old farmer. All past their prime but still working.

Amanda - "Little House On The Praire" effect - very creative, and I like the blurred look! I look forward to more of your pics!
Regards,
