Painterly Portraits

February 10, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

I'm a sucker for the sun. I love it! That big fire ball has to be one of the more beautiful things we have. I'm not the type to go outside when it's hot and get fried, but I do love the sun as it rises and sets, and during the day in the spring and the fall.

I'm also a sucker for portraits made with the sun in them. Add my daughter and a painterly effect and I'm happy as punch:-) The painterly effect is a Photoshop action with a bit of additional work. I love this effect so much though that I may have to get serious about digital painting. I used to do oil paintings, real oil paints and canvas that is. I enjoy digital painting more though, less mess. There is a program call Corel Painter that allows you to paint over your photographs, so that's now on my want list.  How long is it till my birthday? Hm. I've got a while to wait:-)

 

Of course I want a portrait of my son with the painterly effect too. Love the tongue sticking out. It's so Keaton!

 

 

Thanks for stopping by!

Love,

Karen
