Three Muses: Architecture

For the house in this digital collage, I used a picture from a book of black and white Baltimore rowhouse drawings by J.S. Fuqua. I added backgrounds, textures, colors and patterns; and finally the image of the woman from Pringle Hill Studio. Other image credits: deviant scrap, media militia, dover designs.

Wow!! This is an amazing piece, Sherry. I am so impressed by the way you have manipulated the original drawings to achieve an almost ghostly, mysterious setting. I love the negative effect and the lady in the window is the icing on the cake. Superb.

I was going to say what a great ghostly effect, but Marie stole my words! This is so creative, and I love the colors and the woman in the window!

Love the ghostly effects you have created here, Sherry, and the 'woman at the window' finishes it off perfectly!

Lovely effects and carefully done!

I love the "blueprint effect" you've done with it too. It looks ghostly, yet like it hasn't been built yet. Could the woman in the window be a ghost from the past, or a future inhabitant?...

Very cool and somewhat unnerving.
