If you knew just how many names I considered before settling on Drop Anchor at Sunset, you would chuckle. Even now, I might change it!

I used a public domain photograph from Wikimedia Commons – Voilier “Vents du Sud” sur le Plan d’eau du Vidourle – Le Grau-du-Roi (Gard, France)
by Christian Ferrer – as my jumping-off point. Next, I used a couple of my textures and topped it off by adapting one of Kerstin Frank’s sublime background pieces.

I created Sky Above, Sand Below with a monochromatic seaside scene from The Library of Congress of Trouville Beach in France between 1890 and 1900.

I layered, blended, and played with the image using a texture from Distressed Textures via Design Cuts.

I created Screen Gold with an old piece of material (I had meant to use it on a footstool years ago). Textures are from Design Cuts and 2Lil’ Owls. Images are from EKDuncan, the Biodiversity Library on Flickr and public domain images on Wikipedia. A deal of fun was had in the process! The idea was to create a 3-sided screen-effect with a nod to the beautiful and desirable Chinese screens which were so popular in the late-19th and early 20th Century.

As a lover of all things maritime and a descendant of admirals and sailors, I am often drawn to centuries-old paintings of seacraft at work or play. I created Flying Colours with two images far apart in time. One layer is the Russian Squadron at Malta, 20 October 1827, painted by Alfred Gomersal Vickers which is in the public domain. The other is a photograph of Bembridge Lifeboat which I took the other day. I have melded them together using Photoshop’s various tools to make it look as if it were an original 19th-century image.

No sooner did I come across my Indian Glories piece the other day than an email arrived from Redbubble to say I’d sold a notebook with the design. I’ve tried it since with all sorts but it hasn’t worked!
