Re: Creative Interpretations: Train for Danny

Seeing all these good ones here, I thought I'd have a play as well.
Did this with Art History.

Re: Creative Interpretations: Train for Danny

Danny,
You can put that experiment into full production IMHO

Did you find some relatively hidden Impressionist setting that varied the size of the paint strokes?

Regards
Bob Mc

Re: Creative Interpretations: Train for Danny

Excellent jobs, everyone. Especially like yours Craig. Looks like the "Long Black Train" (Great Josh Turner Song).

There's a long black train comin' down the line,
Feeding off the souls that are lost and cryin'.
Rails of sin, only evil remains.
Watch out, brother, for that long black train.
Look to the heaven's, you can look to the sky.
You can find redemption staring back into your eyes.
There is protection and there's peace the same:
Burnin' your ticket for that long black train.

'Cause there's victory in the Lord, I say.
Victory in the Lord.
Cling to the Father and his Holy name,
And don't go ridin' on that long black train.

There's an engineer on that long black train,
Makin' you wonder if the ride is worth the pain.
He's just a-waitin' on your heart to say:
"Let me ride on that long black train."

But you know there's victory in the Lord, I say.
Victory in the Lord.
Cling to the Father and his Holy name,
And don't go ridin' on that long black train.

Well, I can hear the whistle from a mile away.
It sounds so good but I must stay away.
That train is a beauty makin' everybody stare,
But its only destination is the middle of nowhere.

But you know there's victory in the Lord, I say.
Victory in the Lord.
Cling to the Father and his Holy name,
And don't go ridin' on that long black train.

I said cling to the Father and his Holy name,
And don't go ridin' on that long black train.

Yeah, watch out brother for that long black train.
That devil's drivin' that long black train.


Several different History Brushes, a goldish tone color overlay with a lighting effect. Was going for a train coming out of the morning mist look.

Swampy, when I saw your rendition, all I could say was, "Oooohhh." Very nicely done!

Re: Creative Interpretations: Train for Danny

thank you, dee dee

not familiar with that song, but i sort of like it already. btw, i'm the conductor on that one

like janet, i like yours too. i'd love to see just a touch more black on the engine front for contrasting to the mist. i think it would show off the mist and the effect more.
