Drawing from a Photo: Jigger Creek Falls



(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.)

Several days ago I posted a picture of Jigger Creek Falls (here), which we visited in northern Georgia while on my birthday trip. The drawing above is based on another picture I took that day. I used Photoshop to convert the photo into a line drawing.

I first learned how to turn a photograph into line art of Scott's wonderful photo blog, Finding Another View.

********************

Betsy and I will be taking a blog break for about a week. I'll be back about April 4, the yard willing.

nice work... :)

Janie said...

I like the artsy effect! Very pretty. I thought it was an actual drawing at first.

I'm always amazed how much I see from a scene after the fact in looking at the photo. Transforming it into a pencil drawing has a similar effect in its highlights and patterns.
