FROM THE ARCHIVE 13th November 2015
The original photograph is a marvellous shot of the Art Nouveau building designed by Paul Hankar for a late 19th century  florists in Brussels. I downloaded it a couple of years ago from Wikimedia.…

Emerald Arches came about when I was playing around with a makeover for Stephen King’s novel Green Mile. One particular blending of an image and a background, the former discarded as far as Green Mile was concerned, shrieked at me to be recreated as my next art piece.

The photograph is a painting from 1842 by Jules Victor Genisson on Wikimedia of the interior of Amiens Cathedral. Blending it in ‘overlay’ mode via Photoshop with 2 Lil’ Owls texture 2LO Distressed 7 made my heart leap!

I wanted to bring out the edges as if the original had been an architectural drawing with a colour wash. This I achieved by adjusting the brightness and contrast and sharpening the edges until I was satisfied. I could have used Photoshop’s rendering tool on a duplicate layer but this is never satisfactory as it always looks unnatural and manufactured rather than actually drawn by hand.

Another quick post as I have nothing new to show or say except that I sold one of these mugs recently. It is an early collage created from inherited ephemera.

I am feeling a great deal better but am coping with some odd sleeping patterns which are frustrating, especially if you have to get up at the crack of dawn for some root canal work! And there’s more where that came from.

The original photograph is a marvellous shot of the Art Nouveau building designed by Paul Hankar for a late 19th century  florists in Brussels. I downloaded it a couple of years ago from Wikimedia. I’d always wanted to do something with it but the resolution was low. I looked for it again recently, having lost the image during the computer saga of this time last year, and downloaded it once more. I resized it with Perfect Photo Suite and while it would not have passed muster on its own, I knew that a duplicate in Overlay mode, would enable me to transform it into a high-resolution Christmas treat.

Everything Christmassy that has been added, such as the angel and baby top left, the Father Christmas bottom right, the holly over the door, the ‘Compliments of the Season’ etching top right and so forth, is from The Graphics Fairy, apart from a painting by Eloise Harriet Stannard (1829–1915) called Christmas Still Life, also from Wikimedia, which is bottom right behind Santa. The eagle-eyed will realise it’s the same still life I used a detail from to create the most recent book cover makeover.


A goose never voted for an early Christmas.  Irish Saying



At Christmas play and make good cheer,
For Christmas comes but once a year.
Thomas Tusser “The Farmer’s Daily Diet”


 


Christmas is doing a little something extra for someone. Charles Schulz


 


“Our hearts grow tender with childhood memories and love of kindred, and we are better throughout the year for having, in spirit, become a child again at Christmas-time.”
Laura Ingalls Wilder


 


“My idea of Christmas, whether old-fashioned or modern, is very simple: loving others. Come to think of it, why do we have to wait for Christmas to do that?”
Bob Hope

I thought I’d jump on the bandwagon and create some commemorative gifts for the 200th anniversary of the Battle of Waterloo, which took place on 18th, 19th, 20th and 21st June, 1815.

Royal English Opera’s Ivanhoe Mousepad

Arthur Sullivan’s Ivanhoe was the only opera ever produced at the Palace Theatre of Varieties. ‘The Handsomest Music Hall in Europe’, it was originally built as a venue for opera by Richard D’Oyly Carte. The theatre was renamed the Palace Theatre in 1911, a name it retains to this day.
