Took Maggie for a hand walk in the snow, through the woods, to the Pond yesterday. Took a quick snap... It is not easy, carrying a camera, walking with a cane and holding Maggie's lead line. But as usual, Maggie was very good about it.
Decided to play with this photograph, using two computer programs and this is what I came up with.

Ever so slowly moving along with the Japanese Castle. Inked the stairs in and worked on the extension of the Castle. Is going to quite a bit of work to hand color each piece of Stone, but worth it. Still have the last part of the Castle to do. Once that is done, will finish up the sky.
Had a lot of fun working on the Japanese Castle yesterday. Added a lot of highlights...though they are hard to see in this photo. Started working on the Stone base, of the castle.... will take me about 6 hours in total to Ink in the foundation, not including adding color later on.

I was going to wait until I Inked the whole Castle in, before adding some color. But yesterday I decided to add 2 layers of base color on the main body of the building, before I did more Ink over the top of that. In the photo DH took, the Castle is real dark.... as the photo was taken on a day with very heavy cloud cover. I think I will lighten the Castle up a bit, in the painting.
After making bread, starting laundry and so on, this morning.....figured I had better find some time for my Art. Even have a pet plant, who's species was around during the time of the Dinosaurs. Continuing work on the Japanese Castle.
I will get the first layer of Ink on, then go back and deepen the highlights.
Continuing with the Pen and Ink work, about half way done with that part. Once all the inking is finished, will add more highlights and a soft color to the main part of the Castle. As with all my Art, it is NOT part of public Domain and is copyrighted.
