Caesarea, Israel

Enjoy the ruins of Caesarea, Israel and a blurry picture we saw quite often on our journey...laundry, which was snapped from the bus window as we rolled on by.

Not bad Steve, not bad at all. Love the laundry especially.

My take on the colorful laundry.

I prefer them as a photo! Enough "alteration" as been made by time!

Re: Caesarea, Israel

Like Gary, I thought this one would make a good sketch, but I added back some color.

Re: Caesarea, Israel

Hi Craig,

Bit of a mishmash of techniques.

Created a "paper" layer using technique from a link posted by Danny the other day (can't lay my hands on it at the moment). This was in a seperate document.

Back to Image document.
First duplicated image twice.
Desaturated new copies, and inverted top copy, set blend mode to Colour Dodge.
Applied Gaussian Blur to top layer and adjusted radius to get best result.

Flattened image and applied Angled Strokes filter to it (can't remember settings).
Duplicated this and applied Gaussian Blur to it (radius about 2 pix), set blend mode to Multiply and reduced layer Opacity for effect (about 60% I think).

Flattened image, then copied/pasted to "Paper" document.
Set blend mode to Darken. (I may have altered layer Opacity a touch, can't fully remember).

Swampy, I really like yours, the colour works nicely.
