The little picture and the the bigger picture -3

By helenlinda
Many thanks for the votes and comments left for the previous two uploads from the wall of grafitti.

In this upload I have taken some of the work that was originally put on to the wall - which was probably carried out as a project with a group of children. It depicts types of transport - from Noah's ark to balloons.The paint on the wooden panels was very faded, so I have blended a layer using vivid colour to bring out the shapes against the brickwork

Thanks for looking

Hope you have a good week

I can imagine this photo being used in the classroom for children to make up stories about. These make a wonderful collage set. Your work has enhanced the colours beautifully.

Lovely collage Helen; works very well.
I can't believe that you remembered that ice photograph of more than two years ago; I had almost forgotten it myself! Wink

Such a clever way of bringing this lovely graffiti panel to epz for our enjoyment - bite size images of the best bits really bring it alive. With your clever processing too, of course Smile.
