Sidetrack - Sketch

Post by Bob Yankle » Mon Nov 06, 2017 6:48 pm

While some folks pursue achieving some great "painterly" effects, I've taken another road ....... sketches. I suspect it's a holdover from my teen years when I drew in pen and ink .... it never quite left my blood. I really love the effect it brings out in bare trees ...... showing the architecture of the branches quite precisely.

I really like this, there's just enough of the photograph to hold my attention while still giving the impression of a sketch. Neat! S-

Thank you Steve. Attention holding is a good goal.

Good use of software for a specific artistic effect. Do you want to tell us a little about what you used and how? I've never tried the sketch effects and would like to know more.

More treasures for my b&w fixation. Thanks Bob and Steve.

Bob, It might be my failing eyesight, but the track seems to be running downhill, left to right. Or it might be that way. Matt
