Young musicians

Young musicians having some fun.

Baby drummer. Part of my Young musicians collection. A cute and clever way to add shild-like sketches to your childrens photos.New ideas refresh my love for art and photography and these Young musicians are going into my ever increasing list of things I can offer the public. These seemingly easy sketches on photographs are much more complicated than you the viewer can see. The hardest part, believe it or not, is to draw as an infant would draw something but keeping that cuteness working with the photo.
Finding a photo where the subject can be used for this technique was a little tiresome, though that is because I was searching for images on the net. Once you see and like this idea I am sure it would be a short task to find a photo where your baby could be chatting over the fence or playing the trombone.
The young drummer here was originally a modelling photo where she was just enjoying her new clothes. Just a tiny bit of imagination puts drumsticks in her hands and a set of drums for her to bash away at. It looks great, looks cool, and looks very, very cute.
Young musicians are created from any photo you may have of your baby or infant. I remove the background, work a little magic, then give them the chance to make some loud music. I have priced these lovely photos at just £6.00 because it is likely you may want more than one. If you would like say three children in one photo my guess would be around £10.00. If you have a large family and would like an orchestra you maybe best contacting me for a quote 🙂
These photos and more will be posted in my Photo Fun page and also at my Facebook page.

Watercolour

Watercolour in Old Township photos.

I have been painting with watercolours for many years but never thought to go digital. Everything I do is just a hobby to me like the photo restorations I do to earn a little extra money. I am the best in the country for restoring photos, the cheapest and most imaginative. So I have decided to add Watercolour to my services to offer people more scope for their photo requirements.
Watercolour on Old Photos isn’t an easy thing to do, there’s lots of manipulations required to prepare the photo. Lots of filtering and much needed imagination. Of course you can simulate watercolour with paint programmes within perhaps 5 mins, they look cheap and do not carry the effects very well. Personally I will be using an advanced drawing board inline with Photoshop and using home made digital brushes that allow you to paint exactly like you would on a physical canvas. Plenty of washes, lots of spills, details and ink sketching will all add to some great looking memories for your photos.
Watercolour your town sceneThis photo example shows the styles I will be applying, and as you can see, this will look better with buildings rather than a family group photo. Having said that, I will be happy to take on any commission and have a go at serving up what you want. The cost will as usual be pretty cheap, I have no overheads and my time is my own. This example is rather complex though I would guess on average a sum of just £30 would be in order. Ask for a quote, it costs nothing to do that and if you haven’t guessed already, the photo will not require any restorations as they would be hidden beneath the watercolour.
