More Painted Photos


The top image is the painted photograph and the second is the actual photograph of Macaulay's birthday flowers from Marc. I actually printed this one with a Photoshop pallet knife filter to help further separate the colors then I painted it with acrylic. All of these things are trial and error, just trying different ways to paint it.  It is a 5 x 7.

Martha!! Htis si tunning!! I am going to do the same with my own floral photos. Like the tip aobut the pallette filter- I have also heard that printing out a grayscale print helps as well!!
Great job and thanks for sharing!!
