Painful Beauty

Glensheen Mansion is a gorgeous historic estate on Lake Superior just north of Duluth. However, I don’t remember much of our tour because kidney stone pain was creeping up on me. We ended that memorable day in the ER. August 11, 2011

I chose to turn a black and white landscape into a sketch. After lightening and increasing the contrast on the photo, I used Filter>Stylize>Find Edges on the top copy of the photo, setting it on overlay mode. On the bottom copy, I used Filter> Sketch>Graphic Novel on the default setting and left it at normal mode.

This is lobely and your sketch is really beautiful.  I remember Jody using Find Edges, but you’ve expanded that even more and thanks for telling us how, I’m going to try this.    I like the colors you used around your photo.
And oh noooooooooo....   I’ve had kidney stones so (literally) feel your pain, it’s unlike no other!  No wonder you don’t remember much about that building and I’d bet that’s all you see when you look at the pic!

Incredible extraction and great sky behind. I like your colors, the red and teal. Fun page even if it wasn't such a fun day!

Oh, oh, oh! This is a place you won't forget. Beautiful extraction and sketch. I like the layers on the journaling tag. Nice pops of red and green color. Hope you will not need the ER again - for anything!
