If you think this image looks familiar, that's because it's created from Marsha's recent post Snowy South Park. When I saw her original photo, I thought it was beautiful and it struck me that it could be a good candidate for some manipulation to make it look like an ink painting. With her kind permission, I tried exploring this idea and this is what I ended up with.
While I was at it, I was reminded of the Porcelain Challenge that Craig put out and wondered what this image would look like in blue. My curiosity led me to create the following variant. (Obviously, I am not going to submit this for the challenge since it is not my photo. I only did it as an experiment for fun.)
Thanks, Marsha and Craig and others, for your inspiration and giving me an excuse to take a break from my busyness to have a bit of fun.
