Beach Houses - Or A View from the Beach by 

The center house is the one that dog/house sit at about 3-4 times a year. I am a lucky girl :o) – it is a picture of their back yard in a view from the beach just down the steps from their patio.

Pseudo HDR- 3 images of different exposures combined and manipulated into a watercolor painting. I used the Orton Effect on one of the layers to add a softening effect.
I added a texture layer to give it a extra painted effect.

My mom inspired this one as she has an actual watercolor painting that she did of this house.

Music: Suzanne Ciani – Inverness)

  • I am sure I got this talent from you – thank you – - it just takes a bit of inspiration and a small piece of knowledge, a desire and viola, the art starts happening on its’ own. . .
