Mouse Over Image
I do a lot of color work, retouching, and canvas printing for artist and Photo Realist Rod Chase. Rod likes to use final reference photos for his paintings (which look like photographs!). We will usually choose any where from 2 to 10 photos to use for the final image. This image is the Blue Bonnet Cafe in Marble Falls, Texas. The only problem is you can't see the front of the building! I picked different items, textures, and landscape items from 12 different photos. I then cloned or recreated the textures as needed. I then took out the poles and transformers and replaced them with trees. To view all of Rod's work visit: www.rodchase.com.
