Blakesley Hall

This is a Timber framed Elizabethan farmhouse built around 1590, and is quite local to me, we took the grandkids there on sunday and obviously took a few photo's, ( and boy they were small back in those days the beds are real tiny not much bigger than what a child's bed is nowadays )
i have included the one in the dining room to show that it is furnished as it would of been all those years ago

enjoy

added the bed chamber ( not very good at all but might be of some interest )

Re: Blakesley Hall

Nice ones Palms, I hope you had a good time there, I think you had good weather for it anyway.
I thought I'd see what the cutout filter would do. I liked it so added a texture and a frame.

Chalkaholic set to soft light and then some color/sat enhancements. Added canvas blended it in.

Re: Blakesley Hall

Great picture of the dining area of this lovely home. I painted the picture first in GERTRUDIS then finished it in Photoshop with an amber overlay and texture.

Re: Blakesley Hall

Great one Steve like the colours especialy

Funny how i didnt think that the dining hall one would be as popular, but everyones has been fantastic, so i have added a photo of the bedchamber ( not a good one at that )just incase some wants to have a go but there was very little space to stand ( you can see the rope ) and pity about the radiator which isnt quite in keeping with the era but very necessary for preservation and for the eagle eyed there is a easter egg on the dress which was part of a treasure hunt for children
