    chalk on the sidewalk

    Took a picture of our sidewalk
    and painted with chalk and evening landscape on it.

    Brilliant. I love this kind of thing. It is fun to see it done digitally. You should try loading the sidewalk photo as a paper grain as well so your chalk actually follows the surface of the stones.

    Hi Johan,

    Using your own sidewalk makes it so unique.

    I love the Belgium/Netherlands landscape, so much sky!
    Perhaps I'll try some of my holiday pictures.

    Wow, Hypnomedi, that's really very cool!
    It really does look 'in place' there on the sidewalk.

    Awesome stuff!

    More like this you mean?

    I'm sitting here trying to think of the right words, and just keep coming back to "this is so cool!".
    Great idea, lovely artwork. Made me smile to see it.

    Visual perception is so strange!

    Now the first one looks like a sidewalk and the second one more like a wall! This is probably caused by the default lighting, being discussed in another thread. When texture is introduced, it is always lit from the top left corner. This is wrong for a sidewalk, but right for a wall.

    The important part is the picture. I never saw those Pollarded trees in the Netherlands, but they're common around here. They make a strong image.

    (I have been to Belgium, but it was just "Ladies and Gentlemen we are stopping at the chocolate factory for 20 minutes!", not really a visit!)

    I have deleted all files, so I go on with my next project.
    A friend suggested that I straighten the sidewalk tiles,
    and that was a big mistake I think, seeing now to the original background.
    Shall think of it next time I want to paint on this background.

    Have purchased some books about painting and can now
    learn something about technics.
