Day twenty three - mosaic

For today's entry for naarmamo  I've photoshopped a watercolour pencil drawing of a 12th century mosaic in a beautiful 6th century church (now museum) in Istanbul. Drawn from a photograph recently sent to me.




 The drawing has been photoshopped with the pixelate - crystallize filter to give the slight mosaic effect.

That's just lovely - and you've really captured a feeling of age.

Thanks. The filter worked very well I think.

Oh yes, that looks just like a Byzantine icon! You've caught the colours and style very well.

Thanks. The brown coloured paper helped to give the aged look to it I think and the filter just softened and distorted it nicely.
