Textured Railway Map

I experimented digitally overlaying these textures with a map – this one from 1901 with textures taken from ink and water marbling, charcoal, ‘brickwork’ effect and ‘smoke’ effect with chalk.

Although I like the idea and some of the effects, I’ve got some reservations about these being digital. They just feel a little flat and disconnected to me. I will try another in physical collage which will also give me the opportunity to experiment a bit with other paint effects.
