Sleeping Beauty

Aha, gotcha didn't I. You all thought this would be a picture of a person didn't you?

Actually, this grand old hotel is a sleeping giant on the National Register of Historic Hotels. Located in Eureka Springs, Arkansas, the Crescent Hotel was built in 1886 for those who used the area for the hot springs and mineral waters.
Enjoy artifying folks. The day I was there, my poor, dirty, humble car was parked next to a shiny new Corvette and a (gulp) brand new Ferrari. Talk about being outclassed!

Love the old buildings that have survived down through the years. Especially the old hotels and lodges.

This is a mish-mash of Paint Engine settings based on the OWetter2, Watercolor2 presets, in an attempt to get a watercolor look -- which I obviously overkilled. As with real watercolors, edge detail is difficult to maintain when the (digital) paint runs together. But it was fun playing.

Thanks for the pic, Janet.

BTW: Parked next to your car would have been my 1960 Dodge station wagon, complete with faded, pale green paint and Push-button Drive (in lieu of a column shift lever.)

I used filters, stylize-emboss, sharpen, erase frame margin and add shadow, then put a texture over this image.
Regards

Janet, your swell photo brings back memories. When I was visiting my Arkansas rellies along with my grandmother about 40 years ago, my aunt, I guess it was, took us up to Eureka Springs. I don't remember seeing this old place but I do remember another hotel in town that had five stories, as I recall, each with a ground-floor entrance. Strange place, indeed.

Aunt and of course grandmother are long gone and I'm sure I wouldn't recognize Bentonville if I ever saw it again...

This is all CS2/AHB.
