More than anything a view of a white-wash thatched cottage in its natural original location will invoke images of smoked filled kitchens with open-hearth turf fires and storytellers weaving fables on a cold winter evening, later in the night with the children tucked away, the poteen was passed around and the adults danced to the fiddler players. ( and the children still awake with the hullabaloo). For better or for worse, very few thatched mountain cottages exist, but we still have the same type of craic in our modern homes.

Thanks All,
I have painted for years in this style and I am slowly learning the mechanics of photoshop regarding everything from blending, etc, etc; I am finding the palette of photoshop that bit more challenging than the real thing. But I must say this comes close to how I would have painted it, call me old fashioned, is there room for this type of Art Photo work out there or have I missed the boat.

Kind regs Pad.

I was quite engrossed in the image and your interesting narrative, and was thinking that I had stepped back a couple of centuries. Then I read your further remarks immediately above. Whilst I use Photoshop for minor changes to my images, I have no experience or knowledge of how the effects you manage to produce, such as here, are achieved. I can only marvel at what you have done, Paddy, and have to say that there is plenty of room for this type of imagery. It is a beautiful image, totally evocative of times gone by, and IMHO artistically and skilfully executed. Please keep 'em coming......I shall keep an eye out for your future postings.

Thanks Ronnie, I will do my best to keep them coming, I doubt if the photoshop experts would call my approach to photoshop as skilful but the bit that I know gets me by for most of the basic jobs. There is alot to learn in this hobby.
