Raj. Our man in India. Fine looking oil on black velvet portrait bought at a thrift store today for three dollars. Unsigned and probably machine made as home decor in the 1960s. There was, however, a booming trade in oil painting reproduction by hand in countries like India. Well built frame. This is Photoshop, Photoshop Express, and Photoshop Camera used together to produce a 36" X 24" (609.6 x 914.4 mm) poster. I originally did not like the large amount of white space between the characters but I now like it. More details to follow later tonight about turning this into a fabric piece and laid into a conventional picture frame. Reduced to 32" X 24" (812.8 x 609.6 mm)
A modern cityscape emerges out of the outline of a citizen of the Old. This fails for me because the prominent skyscraper in blue is too blocky and geometrical. Not soft or with rounded edges. I do like that I titled the illo somewhat to produce some movement or sense of activity. By the way, I find "actions" in Photoshop difficult to install so I do not use them. Everything I do is a one at a time process of applying filters and adjusting same. I cannot remember the steps that go with producing a finished work so each image comes out in a different way. That may be good or bad.
