One Four Challenge – NOV WK 3

This week, I used the week 1 image and opened it in Fotosketcher and in drawing parameters I chose expressive brushstrokes.
Because I'm not feeling confident in Fotosketcher, and knowing what I could achieve in Picasa, I saved the image and re-opened it in Picasa where I converted it to black and white and then sharpened the image slightly, increased the shadows and added a bit of warmth to achieve the effect of an ink drawing.

Week 1
Week 2

Week 3

To visit more One Four Challenge images, hop over to Robyn at Captivate Me.
There you will find how the challenge works, how you can join,if you so wish, and other participants' work.


  1. I like this painterly version alot!

  2. Doris, I like this version too... The tones are great!
    Another successful edit this week ��
    I left a comment earlier this week, but I see it has gone astray again... I do hope this one works.

    1. Robyn, hopefully internet is back to normal now.
      Thanks for your comment, yes, love the tones, but I'm thinking it's a little flat this time around. Have downloaded GIMP and playing with that. Let's see what next week brings!


Comments Welcome
