Life seems to be fairly quickly paced presently with something on most days… or it seems like it ;-) I’m thankful though, that all is well… and also thankful to have some work presently.
I’ve been meaning to share this post for a week or so… I wanted to show you another pic of ‘days gone by’ that I snapped on the way home from a job…
This image was ‘snapped’ with my hand held camera, with no room to move on composition. I wanted the church to be the focal point. It was a very bright day and this is what I saw :) I love reminders of scenes like this from days gone by… back to simpler times… and in this case… perhaps simply the basics of what was necessary… coming together to catch up after the week.
I thought I’d also used this pic to do a plug and show you Topaz Simplify.
I love to paint!! Topaz Simplify is a way of turning images into digital paintings and more… Presently (and only until the end of February), Simplify is 50% off.. hence I was hoping to do this post sooner If you’re wondering what it does and you’re interested in this kind of plugin, you can download a trial version.
I think you could also use this as a tool for painting ideas to give you some direction, if you’re in need of inspiration.
Anyway… Starting with my original image above, I then tried these settings and here are the results.
I really like some of the things you can achieve ‘Simply’ with this plugin OR if you want, you could really spend time and get into some detail.
Had to share… the OLD and the new :-D I do hope somebody reading this might benefit from this post :) Have a fabulous week!!
