photoblog image (Fun Week 2/2010)  A Country Scene

(Fun Week 2/2010) A Country Scene

To break up the ongoing set of themes from Suffolk for a week I have posted a few more twiddles this week, I hope you didn't take them seriously, I will return to my Suffolk theme on Monday, to a place Mr.Trim is very familiar with.

 

Well it started off as a photograph of a local scene from a narrow country lane not far from us but then, for one reason or another, I started to play, making it up as I went along to see what would turn up.

 

The original image was processed through CS3 and Topaz before being turned to a watercolour painting in FotoSketcher.  I then took that image into Serif Digital Scrapbook (freebie edition) where I added the frame and cartoon items.

 

Finally that image was taken back into CS3 for resizing and adding a suitable background.

 

 

Anyway, I hope you find the result entertaining if not very artistic, have a good weekend one and all, Southwold on Monday.

Looks like you are practicing for a commission as the illustrator for a children's adaptation of Lady Chatterley's Lover, Brian...this is a very promising start.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ray.

What entertains me the most, Brian, is seeing how many tools/ways an image can be manipulated. My deceased photographer brother must be rolling over in his grave!
Brian Walbey: I wasn't quite sure when to stop with this Ginnie, at the right point I think.
