Painted Bouquet

(large on black)


Recently I have fallen in love with a set on Flickr ... it's the set titled Painterly by my contact Clive Sax. Being a painter myself, I was wildly impressed with this collection of photographic "paintings." But more than anything I was inspired to try to learn to do similar things with my own photographs.


Well today another of my contacts, one of my favorites - Gert van Duinen - uploaded a painterly photo of his own. Finally my jealousy of these talents got the better of me and I took to Photoshop, determined to do my best!


So, this is my first attempt, and I must say that I think it turned out better than expected ... especially for not having a clue what I was doing or how in the world I expected to achieve such results.


I feel a painterly set of my own coming on soon ... exciting!! :)
