I have been rushing through the videos on my PS Fine Arts Grunge course and not spending a lot of time actually practicing. While my nasty cold lingers I am not feeling particularly energetic (and my neck and shoulder have been a bit sore) so today it was time to dabble a little 🙂
This peacock image is a particular fave, with getting the crown of feathers on his head, and the lovely profile with the gorgeous blue and green tones of the feathers.
Post Processing Steps:
– took original image as edited in LR to use as base
– added in the two swirls on two separate layers to position and resize easily – overlay blend mode around 75% for both
– put a watercolour layer in and blended down to about 80%
– decided it needed a little something and ran the oilpaint filter on the peacock image
I am still very new to Photoshop and trying to learn new techniques while experimenting.
Feedback, tips, tricks and comments all welcome!
