Photo Arts Friday--Painterly

Original photo, Cape Cod, MA

Fotosketcher- watercolor, several passes

I always wished I could paint...alas, I could never wrap my mind around the minutia of technique, AND, then there were my hands---amazing just how little talent there is there.
Thank goodness for cameras and computers.


  1. great 'painterly' effect Linda!

  2. I could have written your words!
    Exactly the same for me.
    Your's perfect.
    LOVE what you did with this.
    Great graphic composition.

  3. Well ... there is loads of talent in your ability to edit your photo into a painting. Beautifully done. Quintessential summer. Thank you for linking with Photo Art Friday!

  4. That is a great image to edit, well done.

  5. this is absolutely lovely! Certainly a watercolor. I am also very glad for computers and my DSLR which allows me to be my very own quality of artist!

  6. It takes talent to take a good picture, and you got it. Blessings!

  7. Linda, with editing like this, you don't need to paint. Wouldn't this make a beautiful print or note cards?

  8. I know whereof you speak! This is really something, though. The photo was artful to start with.
