Almost a painting by numbers here. Ran edge detect on one of my photos in The Gimp, used it as a stencil, painted over with black tube paint to get a line drawing effect. Then coloured in using watercolour on the layer below...

Now if I can find that filter to work on my Mac in AR, I wouldn't even have to leave the program.

Thanks folks... I know it's cheating but frankly I would have given up a third of the way through drawing the stone work on the bridge.... Not got the right sort of mind for that sort of thing.

I love the textures created in this one and the colours too. Great work :)
