PhotoArt Photo Painting Portfolio - Colour

A selection of photographs by Philip Preston

A selection of colour photographs with digitally added paint effects to give a 'photoart' style finish. The effects shown below are produced primarily with Topaz Labs products, mostly Impressions, and occasionally Glow and Texture Effects. The Impressions software comes with a number of presets based around styles of specific painters, eg Degas or Monet, or specific paint effects such as stumble or watercolour. More recently, I have started to use Corel Painter Essentials 7 and a few effects were produced using this software. Adobe Lightroom 6 is also used to edit these images.

All the presets have a large number of variables that can be altered to specific requirements, for example, brush size and shape, paint volume and opacity, giving hundreds of permutations to work with on photographs. I have created and saved for future use a few of my own presets, which are often used with multiple iterations on a single image until I am happy with the final result. Its great fun, and if you like this type of imagery, suggest you try out some of the software yourself to bring out the painter that possibly lurks within you!
