  • JW's Art Corner

    Now I have started the process of creating digital paintings depicting scenes regarding the JTR case.

    I have started out by studying photographs from the period, both from London and other places, to get a feeling for the time. In this thread I intend to post all the studies I create on the topic.
    Some of the darker images might be hard to view in daylight on your portable device.
    All images are painted by hand, with or without reference photographs, in Adobe Photoshop using a Wacom Intous 4 tablet.

    I will create separate threads for each of the C5 scenes I will depict in the sub-forum above this one (Johan Windh).


    All images are under copyright and may not be used without written consent.



    Comments are welcome, as is any constructive criticism.

    Thanks for watching.
    /Johan

    Thank you very much Johan.

    May I just state that in the event that you need me to assist in resizing your work, I will be very happy to help.

      London aerial view

      This study is depicting London in 1888 from the air. There is some artistic freedom when it comes to the color of buildings and such, them being depicted a bit brighter in color in this piece.

              Quick in and out on your thread, JW
              It, the thread, didn't take long to go to a 5 star rating. Superb work, sir.

                These are all very good, Johan.
                I was looking in your gallery link yesterday and love the unusual angles of light and shadow in some of your pictures.
                Thanks for posting these here and welcome to the boards.

                  Johan: I really like your work.

                  In your reference to the Adobe photo.... is this something you are doing all on the computer or are you painting these pictures? I am very ignorant of computer techniques.

                    Many thanks Howard. I hope to be able to add some interesting imagery to the community.

                    Thank you Anna. Yes these images are all painted on the computer.

                    This is what my tablet looks like:

                    It works just like a mouse, but a lot more sensitive. It also has pressure sensitivity.

                    In Photoshop there are many different types of 'brushes' to chose from to achieve any style or feeling and total control over the colours.

                    Here's a video capturing one of my paintings (at high speed).

                      I wish I had one of those!
                      I used to love doing artwork on the laptop but I had to use the built in laptop mouse with one finger and it got very fiddly.

                      It's nowhere near your standard, Johan but if you look at post #9 on this thread:
                      https://www.jtrforums.com/showthread.php?t=11625
                      there's a picture I mouse painted in Paintshop pro on my laptop years ago of Charles Le Grand.

                        To have been painted on the laptop mouse, I'd say it's fantastic! You should definitely look into a tablet. There are budget versions, like the Bamboo, too.

                          Thanks! That's very kind of you to say, Johan. I wasn't fishing for a complement. I might invest in one, you have inspired me!

                            Excellent work Johan, the Dorset Street image really made me sit up and take notice; it's like when someone takes a familiar piece of music and remixes it! Familiar, and yet different.

                            All the best
