palms

not familiar with 'lowry'. what is that?

also, the more i look at this pic, the more i like it. it has sort of an early 20th century or even 19th century look and feel about it (and that's including with the coats ).

Tried for an engraved look here.

PSP X

A layer of Picture man's hand drawing Merged with an Impressionist layer to bring back colour.

Palette changed to one I took from a Canaletto painting.

Regards to all,
Mitch.

palms, lowry, ok. and here i thought it was going to be some british english thing like 'loo' or 'lift'

mitch, nice. sort of grainy and aged but in a good way. i like how the reds bring out the building more.

Thanks Craig,

I don't know if its on your list but i've been playing with the 'image repainter' plugin from Imageskill. Its ideal for PSP as you can instantly change the palette on the picture you're working on to one from any photo or painting on you hard drive.

The Big ben pic is simply a graphic line layer over a faded original, flattened then the palette changed to one from the original pic, fade set to about 70.

The second one is a strip from your 3,5 promile pic - palette from a chalk pic on my hard drive. This gives a really old faded look.

Image Repainter Here.

Regards to all,
Mitch.

I thought I'd join the 'Hallmark' saga.

Footprints added, plus more blue to the snow.
Palette taken from a snow scene on the Image Repainter site.

It's even more Lowryesque now.

Regards to all,
Mitch.
