Olde Mill Inn by Iribel Olde Mill Inn by Iribel
"Down at the Olde Mill Inn
We'll laugh and dance and sing
We'll drink all day and Bill will pay
Down at the Olde Mill Inn

Down at the Olde Mill Inn
The ships are sailing in,
We'll drink a toast with Judy our host
Down at the Olde Mill Inn

The moon is full, the bar is too, when we come to town
We'll have a beer, cause Jerry's here
So spread the cheer around"

Blackmore's Night - Olde Mill Inn


I couldn't resist posting another work now that I finally got inspired. I spent most of the last night finishing this piece, I just couldn't let it go once I had started... ;)

This piece reminds me a bit of my earlier artwork called "Home" - this is another place I'd love to live in. I must say that I'm quite happy with the way this piece came out. The deep colors of approaching night and the warm alluring lights of the Inn... It makes me want to take a look inside those windows and get my share of the cosy and cheerful atmosphere.

I really enjoy working with landscapes and I'm glad I was able to carry out my vision. I think the colors and lightning turned out better than in "Home" which I found bit too dark afterwards. The blending took some time since I had to use many stock images once again. Hope I didn't miss anything. Let me know what you think! :D

Please take a look at the full sized image! The details can be found here.

I like this piece sooooo much!All the stock you chose to put together are amazing and the job you did with blending is fantastic!Colors are really beautiful!

The only 2 things that I'd done differently are:I'd chose some other brushes for smoke and I'd blend differently that small part of rocks or whatever that is that's on the left part of the picture.

I really like how you blended the sky with trees,mountains etc.The stars are great touch to the sky
I also like the lights.I think you did amazing job with them!
The blend of 2 different houses is also great-they mach perfectly

All in all,this is a wonderful wonderful work!It's very peaceful and calming-look like place where I'd like to live if I weren't addicted to sea :)

I am seriously in love with this piece,so this wont be much of a critique :giggle:
Place looks so magical and peaceful. I cant even imagine how long did it take to put everything together so perfectly. There isnt a thing I would change here.
Gorgeous setting and atmosphere,great choice of stock and colors for sure. The little fantasy village is beautifully done,and that light coming from the inside the houses is my favorite part,it even reflects nicely on the walls and plants around.
Foreground is beautiful,you cant go wrong with the waterfalls ;)

For sure one of the best photomanipulations I have seen in a while.
