This challenge also comes at a perfect time. For over a year I’ve been turning some of my photos into painterly looks using my iPad Pro. Lately I’ve been wanting to try my hand at watercolor painting, so I got some supplies at Michael’s. I look forward to experimenting with real, live watercolors and the distressed inks. Check out the pearlescent watercolors! WooHooo
Today’s freebie started life as a photo of my crystal fiber lamp. I then ran it through Topaz Studio to process the RAW file. Then I opened it in Affinity Photo and came up with the design. Last step was running it through Filter Forge to come up with the look you see. The final image size is 6000 x 4000 @ 300 dpi. File size is 26.75 MB.
