I Am No Roger Tory Peterson
We have a signed and numbered Roger Tory Peterson quail print that has hung on a wall for a number of years. I do not know the value of the print. Whether it is worth much or worth little means nothing, I like the artwork.
After photographing our Eurasian-collared doves today, I wondered if I could even come close (electronically) to what Mr. Peterson could do with paints and a brush. So far I have learned my skills are next to nothing in the brush form and even with a computer, the best I can do is trace to paint (adding brush strokes to the image).
Here you go…a few views of the Eurasian-collared doves in our yard and then a simple digital effect to simulate a painting.
