    Well that’s strange – I have that exact same chair which I inherited from my grandad’s railway signal box and I was sitting here looking at it this morning wondering if I should do a still life with it – think you’ve beaten me to it Irene XX

  • Well another strange thing , that is my great grandad in the mirror , watching over me . lol

    An OUTSTANDING image. May I ask what textures you used? I downloaded a couple, but I haven’t learned to use them as well as you do. This is lovely. Did you also make the image itself aged? I just love how you do these.

  • Many thanks Cheri , I can honestly remember which ones I used , I keep trying different ones until I find one that suite the picture . I desaturated the picture first and just left a tinge of colour .
