This old barn sketch

These images I did in PhotoShop and are a variation of a technique described in the tutorial I posted here at RetouchPro. I use no actions because each photo is deferent so you get deferent results when you use them. The only time I do use actions is to save repeated steps. I overlaid the original color photo layer for my color. Set layer-blending mode to (Color) and increase the Hue\Saturation a bit.

I like the colored version best. It's like some old shack in the bayou somewhere. That spanish moss on the trees add to the rustic look. I think the colored version brings out details that get lost in the black and white version. Really pretty work.

Hi Steve
I gave myself a Thanksgiving challenge to try to come close to your version of the B/W sketch of your cabin..After many hours of experimenting, I can get close but I can't produce the fine detail that is in your sketch..

I was wondering if you produced your version of the B/W sketch with a higher resolution picture (right from the camera) than the one you posted in your gallery. If this is the case, I then will know that I did my best with the picture..

Thanks and keep posting your art..It is an inspiration to work towards..

Jerry

The higher the resolution the more fine detail in the final images.
And yes, because of the web the images I posted is low dpi (72) I work with 180-300 dpi.

Both barn pics are great, Stephen. I slightly prefer the b/w since it reallllly looks like a pencil sketch.

Chuck, good job on your sketch. It has more overall color than Trimoon's but it's a different look and is excellent on its own merits. You seem to have mastered his soft pencil sketch method. I tried it, but didn't have much luck, as I lack the patience needed.
