Artist's Description

Hillside Harbor, Stonington, Maine
Digital image

This is an example of the original image and the finished image. The day the image was taken was overcast and foggy. I didn’t have much hope for coming up with anything usable, and if I had stayed within the strictly photographic genre I wouldn’t have. By moving the image over into a more painterly style I could rescue this image. To make a photograph resemble a painting you must do several things. One is oversaturate the color and expand its range. Second is to remove some of the detail; most painters would never include as much detail as there is in a photograph. Then run the through a piece of software that will allow you to add some brushstroke techniques. On this particular image I also distorted vertically about 30% to give a greater feeling of height. Rarely will just using a painter plug-in achieve a successful result.
