An interesting treatment, Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: I don't know if I like it myself, Lisl, so "interesting" is a safe word. HA!

Well...I love what you made of it, Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Very kind of you, Ray. Thanks.
i love the tall ships as much as your treatment Ginnie... well done....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you and thank you, Peter. I never tire of the Dutch barges! We were able to visit inside the one on the right.

I love the outcome of this gently twiddle...Wonderful picture. One day I like to go back when it does not rain, most boats are open for a visit then.
Ginnie Hart: It was a fun, blustery day that Nicholas and I both loved. I know you struggled with it but were still a good sport. I'm glad we were able to go inside two of the barges because I had never been inside even one before! Yes, we'll go back one day....
With this processing - it could be snow!! Love that!!
Ginnie Hart: Well, true! I hadn't thought of that, Elizabeth. smile
That is what rainy days are for. That is excellent processing. It suits the subject matter.
Ginnie Hart: Very kind of you, Michael. The weather was so rainy and blustery, most of the boats were closed for visiting. Luckily, the one on the right was open.

now THAT would be a nice live aboard lol cool shot, sister, i like the rain on the water....
Ginnie Hart: We got to visit inside the boat on the right, Elaine, which I think you would have really liked. But we feared for our lives getting on board because the rain was so bad. That part you would have NOT liked, I know.

This is delightfully twiddled Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Chris. I'm still not sure it's exactly what I wanted but it'll do for now.

my first thought was: Rotterdam - lots of containerships, but also old sailing ships like here! Your treatment is a bit over the top, but impressive the glittering water!
Ginnie Hart: These are barges from the Maritime Museum, Philine, all of which can be visited on a "normal" day. But it was raining and blowing so hard that day, there were only two barges open. It was the most severe storm weather in Dutch recorded history for July since 1901. Maybe that's why I decided to twiddle it "over the top?" smile

magnifique peinture
Ginnie Hart: Merci, Rem.
I do like your treatment and the two barges colouring. I also thought it could be snowfall... but then again I'm from Canada. : )
Ginnie Hart: HA! Snow it is, Jacquelyn, if that's what you like. I actually like snow but wasn't thinking of that til you and Elizabeth mentioned it. smile
I quite like the pointillism touch here Ginnie! Well done.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Richard. I knew there was a word for it. smile
These vessels looking plastered in salt Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Or something quite like it, Chad!
An interesting twiddle Ginnie. I rather like it
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir. The jury is still out for me....
No more English holiday photos, G? I would love to see more thou, yea England through your American eyes. wink
> butter was actually better for my health
Really? I found this article from the Heart Foundation in Australia.
http://www.heartfoundation.org.au/healthy-eating/fats/Pages/butter-margarine.aspx
Now, I need to make sure whether British spreads also contain the Tick. wink
Ginnie Hart: The debate between butter vs. margarine will continue for all the eons to come, I assume, LC, but as many that tell you butter is bad, others tell you it's better: http://www.newsmax.com/Health/Headline/margarine-butter-heart-health-cardiovascular-disease/2013/02/15/id/490638/

So, I've just decided to go with what I like the most, especially since I'm healthy. If that makes sense??

And I'm sure you'll see more images of England in the days ahead! HA!
Update!
I just found another article about fats. This time from the British Heart Foundation,

https://www.bhf.org.uk/heart-health/preventing-heart-disease/healthy-eating/fats-explained

See Top Tips No 1 - Sunflower spread (the one I used in the pictures, but these days I normally used olive spread) is actually better than butter.
So why did you swap? Tell me please.
Ginnie Hart: I just remembered, when Astrid reminded me: She found a study that said margarine is one molecule removed from plastic...and that it's a problem that can lead to Alzheimer's. She'll send the link if she can find it.
Really like this treatmennt Ginnie. The scene lends itself very well to it.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Janet. Sometimes I just like fooling around.
This treatment shows detail that you might not notice otherwise.
Ginnie Hart: Actually, that part is very true, Mary! Maybe that's why I ended up liking it?!
Go on, say you like it Ginnie, then we can all rest easy in our beds this weekend. Actually i like it, I would love to see some of those boats for myself.
Ginnie Hart: Well, I liked it enough to post it, Brian, so I guess that's good enough? smile Thanks.

Belle effet, on aurait dit une peinture.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Sabrina. Sometimes I really like playing around to see what I can come up with. smile
I thought snow too! Keep playing! Enjoy the weekend too!
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Robin!!

I like the edit here; it looks a bit like pen and ink with some hand colouring. It's a busy waterway.
Ginnie Hart: The pen and ink part is what I like, Alan. Thanks for mentioning it.
very sketch booky-y, GInnie. i like the stark look to this image
Ginnie Hart: It seemed so much better than the original, Ayush, so thank you.
