When I have free time (which is a rarity), I enjoy learning and expanding on my skills with Adobe Photoshop. The latest technique I have been working with is the process of manipulating images so that they look more like an oil painting rather than a photograph. For my source images, I used the stock image library; PixaBay. PixaBay is a very useful resource as the photographers are happy to have their images in the Public Domain, and it is a project which I have contributed to.
Below I have included links to the source of the original photograph and you can see before and afters of each image I’ve manipulated in Photoshop.

I hope you have enjoyed these images as much as I enjoyed creating them. Thanks for taking a look!
