For +Artistic Google curated by +Jan McCartney +Penelope Taylor +Rob Robinson

When I saw this colourful fence made out of pencil shaped stakes, first thing that came to mind my was that I should process it as coloured pencil sketch. After trying various freeware and their filters, I used FotoSketcher Portable to create the pencil sketch effect.

This is a digitally modified Google Street View of a pencil shaped fence in Newquay, Cornwall. Original GSV is at http://goo.gl/maps/aYks
