One Four Challenge July Week 4: Etretat on the Alabaster Coast

I have given up on producing a Monet and decided to turn my photo of Étretat into an old-fashioned French postcard.

Hopefully these might be similar to a postcard Monet would buy in a local shop to send to his friends with a ‘wish you were here‘ message!

How to achieve a hand-tinted look on your images.

And now for the weekly round-up.

  2. Fun to see this image as a new piece of art each week. Last week’s version after a closer inspection is really so lovely. I voted for The first week but enjoy attempt 4 and the “bad Monet” as well. Solid work!

  3. The “Bad Attempt at Monet’s Colours” is not entirely bad. Maybe if there was just a way to clean it up a bit. The effect makes me feel like it’s slightly out of focus. But the colors are great. As it stands, I liked your Renaissance Masterpiece the best. Soothing in a dramatic way. Now isn’t that an oxymoron? 🙂

  4. Great treatments each week but I like the last one the most, it has an austere purity about it
