I processed the underlying image in Lightroom CC
Converted it into black and white
Used dodge and burn to create more contrast
Afterwards edited it in Photoshop CC
Used the oil paint filter once
And … after leaving my playground…
“Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.”
– Pablo Picasso
“You don’t take a photograph, you make it”
– Ansel Adams
Wouldn’t it be awesome if one could paint an image like this?
I captured the underlying image in Amsterdam and stumbled upon it today while I was cleaning up my files. Always nice to go back to these older images and to play around with them.
