Photoshop test

This a video of the photoshot test I did back in July. A good size copy of this is on an earlier blog below.

I started the layout and then moved it down before finishing the piece.

At the easel for 30mins.

This picture was taken by one of my boys, Danny.
I had 30 minutes to paint before the family was going out so I decided to paint the view from the cottage patio.
I would have finished but I decided to add some sheep (they came into the field next to the cottage) and this slowed me down.
I will finish them and post the end product.

The view.

This is the view, to give you some idea of what I changed.

The painting.

Work still to do in forground. Make more interest in the rock line and grass areas.

Walking the dog..and painting!

So I finally got away with the family for a small holiday and managed a couple of quick paintings.
Not finished but here is some pics I took on my phone of the event.

Yes it was nice and hot on the coast in Poole Dorset. Yogi found some shade behind the seat but I managed to get sun burned.

Nearly there.

Ok I have spent long enough on this image. It still isn't like my original concept but I am a little happier with it. Will try and dig out some of my scribbles for another time.


This is an image created in photoshop.. Its not quite finished but I have wanted to get it posted for a while as I am going to alter it and want to see if I can get to what I was originaly after with the design.
I feel that as I finish up a design it loses its 'life' and becomes stiff and stagnent. Original idea came from a great image of a Vauxhall Astra coupe, although the title of the image was 'Holdensmallcar'.
