Creative Interpretations: Croxteth Hall

Hi everyone, Danny said it was ok for me to post a photo for you to play with so here it is.

This is Croxteth Hall, Liverpool. Home of the Earl of Sefton until his death in the late 1970's. Hope you have fun with this. I can't wait to see what everyone does.

I've attached my effort too. I started in Painter with the wet oil clone then imported into PSCS to adjust the levels and applied the Impressionist fingerpaint filter.

Wonderful bit of history, Pam. You've proven once again that we CAN learn while engaged in this hobby!

Speaking of which did you know you can install Impressionist inside Painter's plugins folder and use it from there?

I started by enlarging the image to 12" x 12". I like to have a lot of pic to work with.

Sometimes I think I get a little too carried away and this one might be an example of that. It ended up with 15 layers including the background. This is a result of having no idea where I was going when I started, so I just kept trying this and that until it was time for lunch... a logical stop time, right?

Thanks, Pam, for a lovely pic to play with.

Danny you should always stop for lunch, or have someone make it and bring it to you, with a nice glass (bottle) of wine, and some chocolate .......... LOL

I didn't know you could install Impressionist into Painter but I'm going to do that right now. Thanks for the tip.

I love what you did with the photo. The colours are lovely, bright but soft. I'm going to keep working and playing around with mine I think. Or maybe just start another one.

Thanks for playing

I forgot to say in my original post, I didn't take the photo. It's a scan from a magazine our local council distributes. I have taken some good ones of this place (it's 10 minutes walk from where I live so we go there a lot) but not as nice as this one.

Thanks for your comments

Pam - great result
Danny - love the colours... reminds me of renoir-like joy of painting


i wanted to get the flowers "bold", and too late i realized that i'm getting the building still gloomer and gloomer... and then i've been lazy to get it back

I wish they had old estates and manor houses like this is in USA.

I started with buzz 2 at 100, then PSP8.1 rough leather texture, with the color set to a bright orange, and the contrast and blue turned down to 3 and 4.
