My best friend asked me to do a picture of the farm where his wife was raised. All I had to go on was a blurry black and white photo and a few memories. I had to take an artist’s license on a lot of this picture. It measures about 20” x 30”. The trees in the background were done with fragmentation.

Outstanding! The orientation of veneers are right on. Would like to know how you did the lines on siding. Really fantastic.

A whole lotta details involved there!

There has to be easier ways to “clean up” and old photo, but can’t argue with your results using just wood 8^)

This is kind of embarrassing, but I drew them in with a pencil. I knew there was no way I could saw lines that straight. The graphite smeared a bit when I put the finish on, but that turned out to be OK since it left a kind of patina on the house and made the siding look older. BTW, I did check out finish over the pencil lines before I did it on the picture so I kind of knew what to expect.
