Artist's Description

Can also be seen here

Photograph of the famous Amsterdam canals taken at night and converted post shot to create an oil painting effect in the style of the great master himself Van Gogh.

Transformation from Photo to Painting undertaken in GMX Photo Painter using a large brush to fill the canvas, then painting in detail with a medium brush. The image was resized in Photoshop and the colours further saturated.

The original image was slightly out of focus due to the low light levels it was taken in and the lack of a tripod and was destined for the recycle bin but the transformation to an impressionist style painting was very forgiving.
