Re: Creative Interpretations - Little Old Lady

I got too much texture in this but I like the colors. Can't get rid of the texture without starting over and I don't think I could get the colors again. So I guess I'll go ahead and post this.
I 'm really struck by the feel of this picture, but unlike Steve, I'm not so sure the mood it sets is "wonderful." The lady seems to be on a one-way journey.

Re: Creative Interpretations - Little Old Lady

You're right Shari. I almost titled this "Lonely Old Lady".

BTW... I almost always add texture to a 50% gray layer set to Overlay. That way I can always to back and change it or turn it off completely.

Perhaps "wonderful" was a bad choice to describe the mood here.

But to me a storm at sea can create as great a mood as a bright sunny day on the beach, if the images are done well. In this case I agree that the mood is sombre, but the image conveys it well.

Fer Steve (not quite as romantic as your verse):

"Hey Lookie yonder What that I see
Hey That old dog is comin' after me
I thought ya told her I was out of town
I wonder how she know'd I was hangin' around..."

Re: Creative Interpretations - Little Old Lady

I think this image is quite compelling for all sorts of reasons hence why i have tried something else (impressionist)
