As promised, here are some more painting styles using the same photograph as yesterday.  I would be interested to know which of all of them you like best.

    I know what you did up top. Middle one please.

    • CherryPie says:

      They are all created with the same program using the default settings. The middle image is a water colour sketch, which produces the harsh lines around the image. It is also a lot more vivid than a true water colour.

    Modern technology!

  3. I love those effects

  4. I like the water of the second one,but of the castle, not sure; the first has the impressionism look, but overall, I like the colours in the second one. :)

    The first one for me please…as GirlFriday says, it has the
    impressionist feel to it.

    Top one for me, please, Cherie. The middle one’s neither one thing nor t’other (colours postcard bright; pencil/ink lines too harsh against background), and the last one’s a bit too tidied-up.
    Nice to see Bodiam again, though!

  7. It’s fun playing with art programs and fixing a photo that may not quite make it on it’s own. These are great effects Cherie, each holding its own in the right circumstance. Well done.

      I am glad you like them :-) I agree art programs are good for making the best of a photo that I am not entirely happy with. I also like trying them out on some photo self portraits that I have done.
