Delft blue

Photoshop Elements and a Wacom Graphire3

I love Dutch pottery. The Poet is responsible for this addiction. He owned one wall plate from the Makkum factory when we met. It isn't the usual blue and white that is expected from Dutch pottery. It also has various shades of red in the design. The reason that we chose to visit Amsterdam last Christmas was pottery and paintings. Then I started trading on eBay and I was an addict. This tulip bulb vase is one of my prizes from eBay.

Two days with a digitising tablet and I have graduated to Photoshop Elements. I have been teaching it's use in my Year 9 IST classes for a while but was totally uninspired ... until now. Although I will never get a job in the Porceleyne Fles factory with decoration like this, it was still fun to do.

That is absolutely lovely! The background would make a nice one for a web page. :-)

Hi Robyn - I like the economy of style in this, the squiggles representing the more intricate and trademark Delft (almost an anagram of my name) patterning is great.

Now, you've made me want to get a graphics tablet. I had one back in my Mac days, but I got rid of it when I went to Windows. Very nice "digital" pottery. :)
