Robyn hosts the one four challenge at Robyn’s Fine Art – take one of our own photos and edit it four ways over the course of the month. My photo for this month – a shot of our hedgerow in the winter and my intent is to explore the tools in Sagelight to change my photos into painterly images.
This week will be an oil painting effect. Oils, of course have distinctive brush strokes which, I’m thinking, would be hard to duplicate without actually applying an oil filter. So, I’ll say straight up, that I did apply an oil filter, and then proceeded to try to make it my own. I think I started from this image, one of my watercolour versions from last week.
Not to my liking at all so using the undo brush I kept what I liked and reduced the effect to varying degrees on other parts, a feature I like. I don’t have to accept it in total or reject it in total. Adjusting the pressure on the undo brush allows me to peel it back lightly if I wish and in varying pressures around the image.
