And somebody at Buckingham Palace is very happy.

On the day that Prince William and Kate Middleton annouce to marry I visted London with Google Streetview, made a screen drop, changed the air to a more Autumn like scenery and painted Buckingham Palace with AR oil brush. Original screendrop is added for comparison.

Btw during my childhood I visited London often together with my parents and sistes and I well remember the pale red paved road, the Mall, watching the changement of the guards. I wanted to exeggarate this AR painting by adding a road colour matching sky which makes the painting to a whole. Size: 800 x 600 mm, 140 dpi.

Nice, nice, nice!!! What resolution do you paint in? I mean to get to that detail.

Thanks. I paint with ArtRage Pro, Wacom Bamboo Fun pad in ArtRage print size 800 x 600 mm, 140 dpi on an iMac (iMac 1,7 with Intel Core Duo Processor).

Your excellent interpretation of the references You confirmed here too show the outstanding artistic talent You've got, dear mate.
I just wonder which size You approximately set for the canvas when You start Your paintings (apart from the rectangle ratio that depends from the subject).

Hi Ceasar,

I start painting on a 'print size' (see menu "Edit", sub menu "Resize the painting...") of 800 x 600 mm, 140 dpi. When the ArtRage painting is ready I save it as a JPG. I upload the JPG to a canvas printing company to receive a nice and convincing painting some days later. Then I finalize the print with a pork brush and "Talens Amsterdam Gel Medium 094 Gloss" (that's a transparancy drying thickening gel: Google it) to put a paintery effect on top of my canvas print. Works very good!

I work with ArtRage Pro.

Dear Briex,
I'm very grateful for Your prompt and very useful answer.
I'm also deeply impressed by Your mastery working so finely on a not that big size.
Thank You very much and my warmest conratulations, dear mate!
