    Hmm- not sure, but I’d have to see the original to know if it’s an improvement. It’s a bit like an old seaside postcard πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ Have a good weekend! We’re going to an outdoor concert at lunchtime and it’s raining again so not sure how that will go? Brollies at the ready.

    1. Heyjude says:

      Crayon isn’t the best and I’m not aiming for improvement, just playing around with the effects. Just a bit of fun on these crappy times. Enjoy the concert if you can hear anything above the patter of raindrops on your brolly πŸ€”

        Sun’s out again. Raindrops keep falling on my head….. Sing along 🀣🀣

        1. Heyjude says:

          Can’t keep you down! You have been singing along all week 😁

  2. Sue says:

    Like Jo, I’m not sure!! What app are you using, Jude?

    1. Heyjude says:

      I agree. The crayon isn’t the best. And it doesn’t work with many photos. But I’m not aiming for perfection with these, just experimenting.

      1. Sue says:

        Fair enough!

        1. Heyjude says:

          And the app is just the photo gallery on my Huawei phone.

    It looks as if you’re having fun with your phone. I’d love it if you posted the original too, to compare. I think I’m with Jo, but it’s certainly interesting.

    I think Saturday Sketches should be a permanent challenge?

    I like the 1950’s sense of optimism bursting from this colour-scape. It makes me think of Raoul Duffy’s airy/pastel shaded Nice/Promenade des Anglais prints and paintings. Was only saying to G. yesterday what an age of innocence the ’50s seem now, notwithstanding the recent emergence from an appalling war. So yes, it’s good to play.

    1. Heyjude says:

      Yes, it is interesting to see how effects change the perspective of the image. I like the idea of 50s optimism.

      1. pommepal says:

        Yes the fifties seemed so carefree looking back with nostalgia. I agree with Jo and Margaret, I would like to see the original as comparison

  6. Elizabeth says:

    I like it better than the filters that my grandkids apply where everyone ends up looking like the face in Munch’s “Scream.”

    1. Heyjude says:

      Ah yes. No you won’t find me using anything like that.

  7. That’s lovely, a very satisfying thing to play around with, I’m guessing. I agree with some of your other commenters that I would be interesting to see the original. πŸ™‚

    It’s an interesting effect, Jude. But you know I prefer the actual photos, being ‘old school’. πŸ™‚
    Best wishes, Pete. x

    1. Heyjude says:

      I know πŸ˜…

  9. BeckyB says:

    ooh what fun – and much easier to achieve via an app than for real. I was never that good with crayons!

    1. Heyjude says:

      Crayons are not great for creating a neat picture.

      1. BeckyB says:

        I am sure there’s an artist somewhere who has managed it!

        1. Heyjude says:

          Must be. Probably aged 5 😁

        2. BeckyB says:

          Almost certainly, they are also great at working out technology and knowing where the biscuits are hidden. Oh to be 5 again!
