Welcome to the 20th Graphic a Day in May! 😀
Since it’s Sunday, I thought it would be nice to have another John Thornton graphic. As a reminder, there is going to be a worldwide group watch of North & South starting June 1 and details can be found here: N&S Group Watch.
Today’s image and song recommendations come to us courtesy of Kathleen. Thank you so much for your contributions, Kathleen!
Here’s your base image:
Here’s your graphic for today:
When she requested the graphic, Kathleen wrote, “And the song, Sting’s Mad About You. It has a line in it ‘Never in my life have I felt more alone than I do now’. Maybe John is feeling a like that looking out the window at Margaret.” Here’s the link to the song: “Mad About You” – Sting. When I saw the screencap, I asked, “I’ve always wondered whose tongue prints are on the window glass. Are they on the inside or the outside?”
Using the window theme, I decided to make a bit of a storyboard siggie. When I watch North & South, I notice how often characters stand in front of windows.
I used the following screencap for the window panes:
I cut out all four panes of glass. Then I placed the base image in one pane and found the following three images to fill out the rest:
Using the Clone tool, I removed Mrs. Thornton. With the Match Color command, I did some color correcting. The word “Reflections” was written in the ChopinScript font. I then duplicated the text layer, rasterized it, rotated and blurred it so it would appear as if it was reflecting on the glass. You may have noticed I also added the curtains to each of the four panes to give the graphic continuity.
If you were Margaret Hale, what would you do about the elder Mrs. Thornton once you married John? Also, whose tongue prints are those on the window glass? 😛 Those might be good questions for the N&S group watch, LOL! 😉
Thanks for all your input and I’ll see you tomorrow.
