View Full Version : Pont Royal Google Street View & ArtRage

Today I traveled to Paris, to the Pont Royal (or the Royal Bridge) with Google Street View. In the background: Ecole du Louvre (School of Louvre). I made a screen drop of the Google Street View scene, did some tricks in Photoshop to make the image more romantic and 100% hand painted it afterwards with ArtRage in oil knife and a bit oil brush. The painting was later covered with a vintage canvas structure in Photoshop. Voila:

It is quite a grand scene to take in.

You blow my mind repeatedly. You need to know what good paintings are comprised of to get there. And you have lots of range and skill both with your camera and your painting ability. You have a phenomenal understanding of color as seen in all your work, and an deep grasp of strong composition.

This one is utterly stunning. Bravo! :):):):):)

Absolutely awsome interpretation! Very "classical" one. Halfway between Canaletto and Corot with some Magritte style touch ...
