i love photography
i also love paintings
combining the two loves is an art all in itself
i now love painted photography :)
for this image, i first opened it in snapseed to straighten the horizon and sharpen the details.
then i brought it into Photoshop (elements 9) and cloned out some distracting grass in the bottom corner
and a branch in the top right.
i added a layer of Kim Klassen's texture (KK_99) at 35% soft light and saved that image.
i again went into snapseed, added some drama and grunge, and saved again :)
Finally, back in photoshop, i added a texture layer from Melissa Gallo's Painted Texture (Confetti Canvas).
i kept that in normal mode, then painted some of the texture layer off.
i loved the way it changed the image, and gave it such a vintage feel :)
here is the original image...
