I went for a walk this last weekend and went wild, taking photos of all the wildflowers that seemed to bloom overnight. I found these sunflowers in the field behind the Veteran’s Home in Columbia Falls, Montana (USA).
Original photo taken in June, 2011 with a Kodak EasyShare Z712 IS camera. Photomanipulation was done in Photoshop CS. I started with the Topaz Clean filter, using the Stylized setting to give the photo an impressionistic look. I followed up using the Redfield Plasteroid filter for texturing and the Redfield Sketchmaster filter, layered over the original to give it more of a painted look. I finished off by selecting the dark yellows and blues in the image, jumping to a new layer and adding some beveled layer effects to give it the look of extra layers of paint.
