Monastery Watercolor

Created for a documentary-style promotional video for a religious community. I isolated the monastery from its original background and composited a new one. I added shadows and extended the walkway to fit the new setting. I applied filters to make the finished work look like an illustration instead of a photo, doing a lot of shading and adjustments to get the look right. I colored the entire scene by hand to give it a watercolor look.


The monastery, sky, field, and shrubs are from separate images. I altered the field to create enough green space around the building, and created clouds to give the sky a somewhat overcast look. I made slight alterations to the lines of the building to work in the context of the scene.
