Black and White Sketch

Bench and Bananas – Pencil Sketch

I can’t go into much detail as to how this picture was created as it is simply one of the photo editing effects on my phone. Originally taken in colour I simply scroll along to the black and white pencil sketch and save. There are a lot of effects on the phone, my favourite is probably the colour pencil sketch which has featured on here quite often. Why did I choose black and white? Because I liked the way the lines in the paving line up with the lines on the bench which I’m not sure comes across as well in colour.

      I don’t do it so much on the computer now, but it’s so easy on the phone. Just a couple of clicks.

      1. me too, i am too lazy to do it in laptop, but with iphone it can be done within few seconds.Now I wanna try doing some Black and white too.

      2. BeckyB says:

        hmm now there’s a thought

    It makes a more interesting black and white than colour, I think. My phone doesn’t do this but I have an app if I want to play πŸ€—πŸ’•

      Hope the birthday boy has had a good time 🍾 πŸŽ‚

        I think so, apart from the football. Excellent day yesterday. Just heading back to the station now πŸ€—πŸ’•

        1. Heyjude says:

          It’s just a game. I can’t be doing with all the hysteria. Good on them for reaching the finals I say. Hope he had a nice cake 🍰

        2. restlessjo says:

          Not especially, but we had fabulous flambΓ©d apple fritters last night and my sizzling duck was superb πŸ€£πŸ’•

        3. Heyjude says:

          Sounds very nice. Back to the slow cooker now…

    I can see what you mean about the lines. But I prefer the original of course. I like the lush green of the banana leaves.
    (Maybe it’s time for another bench series soon?)
    Best wishes, Pete. x

      I’m sure there are loads of people who are still photographing benches πŸ˜‚

      1. pommepal says:

        I’m one of those bench photo taking fanatics. Can’t seem to go past one Evan all these years later πŸ™„

        1. Heyjude says:

          Haha… I have found a few sneaking in lately, but I deliberately stopped taking photos of them.

  4. pommepal says:

    That is so tropical looking. Where was it taken? And of course I love the pencil sketch, that is my favourite art form I have so many sketch books full of them

    1. Heyjude says:

      I like the pencil sketch too, just wish I could do it myself! The bench, and the bananas, are in a garden in Penzance. Haven’t been there since last November!

      1. pommepal says:

        I’m saving that photo sketch in my inspiration folder as I think it is so good for copying….

    Wonderful conversion Jude πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

    1. Heyjude says:

      Thanks BB 😊

  6. Toonsarah says:

    I agree, the edit definitely emphasises those lines – very effective πŸ™‚

    1. Heyjude says:

      Thanks Sarah.

  7. Anne Sandler says:

    Black and white for sure!

    1. Heyjude says:

      Thanks Anne.

  8. Murtagh's Meadow says:

    Love them both sketch and colour photo

  9. Ann Mackay says:

    The pencil-sketch effect works really well with the lines in the image. I Like the colour version too because the banana leaves look so lush.
