  • Architectural Portrait

    Hello Friends!

    I am wanting to turn "Phillips Hall," the main administrative building of Barclay College, into a portrait. I am going to make it on 1/8" oak plywood, and frame it w/ a black background. I've done two other portraits now, which turned out good, though, I have only been scrolling since October -- so making patterns -- and even cutting them out -- is still a bit difficult.

    Attached are a few of photos of the school building. Something weird happened with the sun, that made the mortar of the bricks stand out in a WEIRD way! I don't want to cut out the bricks...that would take forever. Also, you could see the photo at Campus Tour - Barclay College ... it is the first building on the page. That picture could be the best, I dont know, thought it is low in resolution...it would be great to get the trees, like in "Phillips Hall 1", but, I'm not sure if it can be done with these photos. As I messed with the threshold option, I just couldn't find anything good. If I need to -- let me know -- and I can try taking another photo....

    I would love it if someone can help me make a pattern! My wife is hosting an art auction, with all the proceeds to benefit International Justice Mission (ijm.org), and it is happening during an alumni weekend, so I am hoping some alumni will be interested.

    I really appreciate your help!

    Thanks!

      Joel, What level of detail are you looking for? This is a quick first look at it and still has lots of floaters in it and needs considerable cleanup. Would this work if I got rid of the floaters and cleaned it up. How would you treat the mortar and bricks? Let me know if it is worth spending time on for this level of detail.

        Hey Don,

        Thanks! I don't want to do anything with the Brick and Mortar. I'm not a good enough saw-er yet to do it anyway! I am just hoping for the main outline of the building / windows, so that if someone looks at it the portrait, they will know that it is phillip's hall. Yes, this would would great if you got it cleaned up! I hope you don't have to spend lots of time on it on my behalf...I'm not just not yet great at making patterns -- I made one from a person photo -- and that was ok -- but when i started this it seem very hard.

        Thanks. I really appreciate it!

            OK Joel, Here it is. It certainly is different and would be a great challenge to cut. I would love to see what you come up with when you cut it. Good Luck!!
