The Painted Ladies

My posting today is my version of the Painted Ladies in San Francisco as sort of a personal postcard of my own. These houses are sometimes known as "Postcard Row" and as been in nearly 70 movies, TV programs and ads. That's a hefty resume!  I hope my version gets as much attention! I loved this city and can't wait to go back one day. There many many interesting areas to photograph and re-create artistically. I worked with different techniques in Postworkshop Pro, Adobe CS6 and Corel Painter to create just the right look that I wanted and give a new painted uplift to an ordinary photographic postcard. I'm still in studies at The Artists' Quarter this week so this is a previous image that I created and wanted to share. Hopefully you will enjoy a refreshing view of these famous houses too!
