Neodigital Art | Forge Mill Farm
I’ve started today with a photo of Forge Mill Farm, I went there on Easter Sunday. It was cold! There is still some snow about and so I had to wrap up warm and try to cope with the poor light.
I had to take this picture quickly. I wanted the train in the shot! I do have another shot with more of the train on. It crosses a bridge over the river, a little farther on. That’s the shot that I really want when the light is better. I might even use the tripod for that one! It will need the camera set on a faster speed, so more light will be better.
I’ve taken this shot before, but this one is better; no one wandered into the shot. The light wasn’t very good though. Patterns make a picture better and I used the pastel pencil option in PhotoScape to bring out the patterns in this picture. We have the patterns of the brickwork and the ‘cobbles’.
From this angle you can see then building used to be a water mill. The window on the right must have been a recent addition, the water wheel would have been there. Notice the textures and patterns in this picture, I used the watercolour pencil option again to bring those out.
They had all the young lambs in out of the cold. I prefer to do something artistic with live lambs, rather than pickle them in formaldehyde!
I shot this from close to the top of Sandwell Valley. You can see there was still snow around. I think that’s Sutton in the distance.
This shot is across Dartmouth golf course. That would be Birmingham, somewhere over there.
I hope you have liked today’s picture and the artistic edits. Please comment and share your thoughts.
