Architecture for Photo Art Friday

 

Outer bldg edited

I took this photo last weekend when I was volunteering at the Sharon Temple.  This week for Photo Art Friday Bonnie asked us to create art on architecture so I thought of this one

 

outer shed

I used part of a tutorial that Bonnie gave us last week.  I took my photo into Photoshop and chose filters- artistic- find edges.   Then I added a PixelDust texture called age it. Finally I took it into Topaz Adjust 5 and chose a preset called Lomo I.   That is it.

Joining Photo Art Friday.   Have a great weekend.

Fabulous edit Valerie! It really looks like something you sketched and then added a touch of paint to ... Such fun to hear the 'how', too. Thank you for sharing your art with Photo Art Friday.

lovely processing on this! What a cute little barn this is

Heather said...

It looks like a pen and ink drawing. I'd be printing it off and framing it - love those old barns.

Lovely work!

Excellent choices for effects! They combine to give the real feel of old weathered, cracked and flaking barn wood. The "find edges" makes it look like it could be an etching.

It's hard to imagine improving on the original photo, but you did big time!

Ida said...

Wonderful. I really like the subtle vintage feel your edit gave this barn.

This looks like an architectural rendering. Very nice.
Thanks for the process, too.
Have a great weekend.
