My tribute to Andrew Wyeth. This is not a copy of any of his work. I tried to captured his style and feel.

It was a lot more work than just adding a filter to a my photo. I removed a house, trees, a mountain, added a sky and basically recomposed the whole image to get his "uncluttered" look. Photos used are my own. See SBS.

Mr. Wyeth work is copyrighted but you can see it here (sorry it is so long)

well shuck my corn and call me grits... I do declare I may have just peed myself.. a little (got my depends on so I am fine) .. Now do American Gothic ...purdy purdy purdy please?... hehehe.. super duper perfection.. and the SBS is exhaustingly excellent (I know exhaustingly is not a word but I may as well earn the thumbs down I'll get shortly... hehehe.. seems to be a trend LOL)

Any whooooooo... GREAT JOB!!!... I do back flips if I wasn't so top heavy (very big head) LOL

GOOD LUCK and awesome SBS!!!

Wyeth was a very subtle colorist. He was never this monochromatic. The hues of the main subject always stood out from the background.

On it's own it looks like a picture you took and just change the tones and texture, that's how good your blending is. But when you look at the SBS, you can really see how much work went in to this, and now I like it even more, goo job = )

author says:

@ Emik - Thank you so much for noticing. Your comment is really appreciated as I was afraid that the work I put into this would not get noticed!

Thanks to everyone for your comments and favs!

WOW, this is incredible work, author! Great sbs, thanks for sharing, those are some interesting techniques. I think the high-pass adds a sort of sparkle to the foliage. I personally like the subdued tones and I think Mr. Wyeth would be impressed.

author says:

Again I want to thank all for the wonderful comments and recognition on this image. I was afraid it would be too suble.

I got really sick last Wednesday with what the think is Bronchitis or possibly Bronchial pneumonia so I did not get the voting and commenting I would like to have done but please believe me that as soon as I am on my feet again will be around to visit your latest art and fav anything I have missed! Hugs to all ... from afar as no-one wants what I have!

This is why an SBS is so important - it's a pain to remember to grab a screen capture when in the throes of creating and tweaking, but only a detailed SBS reveals the intricacy of techniques used (and some great tricks!) This is strikingly beautiful in its subtlety.

As for some comments... last I knew, a tribute was a nod to a style, an interpretation, not an imitation.
