Notting Hill Station

Notting Hill Station, London (Click to Enlarge)

I spent a frustrating day getting Susan's car serviced and fitted with new tires so she can drive to St Louis tomorrow to see about her daughter and family. Which is to say that I have no new pictures to share. So I will share an old one. I have been using Paint.Net to work over some photos taken on my last trip to England and France in 2000. I always wanted to do something special with this picture of the Notting Hill Station and I like the look of an ink and wash. What do you think?

It's a gorgeous photograph and I have enlarged it and printed it off with a view to, perhaps, finding inspiration for a pen and wash picture. My painting always starts with such high expectations and I generally finish up with something that's just OK or perfect for throwing in the bin!

I like your photo (or do I say your painting?) When i was young (many many years ago !!) i went to London quite often ( it's only 6 hours from Paris with train and boat) and iI always leave at Nothing hill, and queesway, it was at this time, the very cheap place, I don't thing it always the same thing now !!

The Notting Hill station is very picturesque. I always wanted to do something with that. I even sketched the whole scene of on paper to do as a watercolor but could never get it right. I am very impressed with Paint.Net. I am glad you like it.
