August is Review Month on the One Four Challenge – I missed the last one as due to being in Tasmania at the time.
Given my new learnings within Photoshop my review image this week is the lovely Peacock taken at Fyffe View Farm Park in Kaikoura.
This was my first attempt to tart him up – applied the oilpaint filter, added a watercolour background for some colour and my first go with swirly brushes.

SECOND TIME AROUND:
1. Also applied Oil Paint filter but a much finer version
2. Add a blue swirl – the colour sampled from his chest feathers
3. Add some bigger black swirls across his chest and for fun some in his crest feathers too.
4. Blend in via Hard Light.
4. Add a water stained paper texture over the top and blend down.
Had no particular agenda here, just to try variations on my first attempt when I really didn’t have any clue at all what I was doing. This is dabbling for the fun of it 🙂
