Painted Adobe House

I have a friend who has been trying to get me to move to New Mexico, she sent me this picture as an enticement.

I thought it would be fun to see what you folks could do with it.

I achieved my results by using the Art History brush, charcoals by Ro in Photoshop, then I brought it into Painter and used the Impasto clone brush, different sizes, different opacities, on several different layers with different blending modes. Finally it was back to Photoshop for the texture.

You can get the high resolution images here:

Painted Version

Have fun!

I love the photo. I used PS to make a background, sandstone texture. I added a layer style set to emboss, and painted cracks and chips into the layer. I ran artistic filters on the photo,and then used blending modes until it looked right. I roughed up the edges and adjusted the color.

That is SWEET Cathy! Looks like seashells added which, given the desert clime is very sublime.
I simplified by using Dave's Infrared action followed by multiple actions of Simplifier. Added just a hint of sepia.

cheers
Dave

Thanks Dave. The carvings are actually native american symbols, but I guess they look like shells. I love the hand drawn feel of your work.

cathy, yours reminds me of those picture postcards that were done on a more absorbant paper, almost a construction paper. very nice!

where duv's reminds me of a cartoon strip type pen and pencil. also good.

Cathy -- I have started looking for your work because I like it so much -- I really like this version also!

Elleth, I love this image, and love Pueblo/adobe architecture.

I used several color choices from the image with the Sketch->Notepaper filter from PShop.

Did a little overlay painting in Painter. In PS simplified, and on separate layers a dry brush filter and a watercolor. Blends.

What character this adobe building has!

I did some subtile and not so subtile things to this picture. Using various selection methods I isolated light adobe, dark adobe, snow, rocks, sky, window with shutter and door, sky and the fur tree in the background (above the roof line) on separate layers.

I applied various textures and filters to the different layer elements. For example, I used a focus blur on the fur tree, added some grunge to the window & door elements, applied different textures to both the light and dark adobe. Added texture to the rocks and a slight bevel.

I also toned down the blue in the sky (it was too bright with all the other changes).

I've had time to play today!!! :-)
