This week I wanted to use a monochrome look to emphasize the Victorian ‘Industrial’ quality of this Spanish conservatory.
I thought for sure Stackable’s ‘Tintype’ formula would fill the bill but in my one image the focus was just too sharp to work. The second image, being slightly misty to start with, worked better. Stackable’s ‘Winter Blues’ formula worked for both but I’m not sure if it’s ‘industrial’ looking.
I also liked Stackable’s ‘Sandscapes’ formula for both but again was uncertain if it was industrial enough.
So it’s back to Photoshop where a favourite overlay converts the conservatory/art gallery into a sepia monochrome. I found this overlay, and lots more, at Rene’s Playing with PSP Textures Album.
Two more overlays that I made out of scans of old books, both stained, one written in. I still prefer the overlay that I got online, sigh…
Week 1: My choice of Waterlogue’s ‘Bold’ style.
Week 2: My choice of Sketch Guru’s options was this lime green ‘watercolour.
Week 3. Stackables ‘Rich England’ formula created a dreamy atmosphere and a hand-tinted colour look.
Week 4. Grungy industrial Victorian monochrome.
