Photoshop Revisions: A Desert Oasis

day 3: Creating the pre-painting composition (using Adobe Photoshop)
Too bad we can't go inside Scotty's Castle. It's a palatial marvel.

"Some say Death Valley Scotty built the Castle with money from his secret gold mine. (It's a good story.) Others say Chicago millionaire Albert Johnson built it. Regardless of who was responsible, the Castle is a testament to the ingenuity and character of the people involved.

The resulting structure is a beautiful example of Spanish-Mediterranean styling. It is filled with unique hand-wrought iron and tile, custom-made furniture, hand-selected tapestries and European antiques."

This will be the basis for the painting
