In addition to writing, one of my interests is photography and digital art, so I thought I would share a few of my creations here in my blog today. They were designed in conjunction with the writing of my daily serial romance, “Orchard House & The Heart Of Everything,” and hopefully will be of interest to my readers, followers, and other visitors.
This house I used as the model for Orchard House. Taken from a photograph I took, I then gave it this pencil sketch effect through one of my digital art apps.
Here I’m trying out an oil painting effect for this photograph I took to help in writing the scenery of the novel. Apple trees in the orchard, with a little church in the distance, and the mountain peaks behind. They all find their way into the novel. For anyone following the story, the place Matthew and Summer hike to called Sharp Top is the smaller jagged peak in the center of the range in the background here. It is a real place 😉
Going for a dark tone in this image of the road cutting through the orchard. Whenever possible I like to do photographic studies for my long form stories, and these are just a few I did for the daily serial romance. Hope you enjoyed.
