Door Knocker

My good friend, Susan, has been remodeling her guest bathroom and wanted a long vertical picture to hang over the commode.  She brought me a picture of a door knocker that she had taken in Italy.  It was roughly a 12 x 18 picture and she wanted it to be 8 x 23.  We ended up with 10 x 23 but had to grow the wood area of the picture to do it.

This was done by adding copy paste layers of the wood work at the top and bottom of the door knocker and then merging the layers. The smug tool was used to try to blend in the area where the layers were added, burn tool was used on the knocker itself to enhance it and the colors were enriched.

  1. I swear I just saw this same door knocker on a wall display on the ship Allure of the Seas – Royal Caribbean.

  2. Nicely done, Karen!

    1. Thanks. It was a bit of a challenge to make it tall. I was having a time of it until I remembered to merge the layers. Then it went smoothly.

      1. I’m impressed 🙂
