Colourful landscape

Colourful landscape
Went back through some older work and  finished this one- dont think I posted it before.   Could keep refining this forever I think.

Camouflage 2

Camouflage 2 
 This one was worked up at the same time as this previous image.  The starting point is below.  Tried to keep the palette under control.

After William Callow


After William Callow

Tried a study of a what looks like pen and washes.  Tall order for me in Photoshop.   Worked on it for a few hours but still lot left to refine in it.  The detail packed into the original is immense.  The house is still there  but the street scape has changed somewhat.

Camouflage

Camouflage


Tried out a full on illustration.  It dropped out of a photobashing exercise.  Looking at the starting point i can see I could have taken a more dramatic direction but this is where I ended up.  I think when I take this as a starting point it, rather than confining opens up more possibilities.  The battle with this was to cool the palette down which I tried to do maybe could have gone even cooler in passages.
