I saw an image in Filter Forge galleries a while back. It was a heavily manipulated photo.

Well, you know that I love to recreate photographs (usually my own) so I thought it would be fun to do something similar in Vue, then do almost, but not quite, the same postwork with Filter Forge, and also a bit of messing around in Photoshop.

This was the result. I rather like it. Now…..if I can remember all that I did, I might do this effect on future pieces 🙂

If you recall my artwork of a while ago based on my favourite view along our canal towpath, I have now done a Winter version as I was able to get some good reference photos a couple of weeks ago as it snowed on our Sunday morning walk 🙂

So, here’s my recreation….

And here’s one of the photos that I took to use for reference. The fence isn’t visible in the photo, but rest assured that is IS there, just out of shot.

Just in case you don’t recall (or missed) my earlier artworks inspired by this lovely view – here’s a link to the post

My latest endeavour.

I’ve been meaning to make a little oast roundel for some time and finally got around to doing it this week, so it’s here in my little piccy.

My interpretation of THE chateau in the programme Escape To The Chateau. Took me a few weeks to build the models as I did it in batches and did other things in between to ease my frustrations, but I got there eventually. It’s not perfect by any means, but I’m pleased with how it turned out.
