I am no stranger to PS, but as I normally do 3d work, I mostly use it for sharpening & color correction. I have been doing some different work, mostly landscapes & wanted to make them look "painterly" so did a web search...and here I am!
I used a montage of tips & techniques from the links here on the butterfly...filters: watercolor, sprayed strokes, angled strokes, gausian & smart blurs, etc, along with a tweak in flaming pear's aetherize filter. Unfortunately, I lost track of exactly what I did as I kept trying out different things I was reading about! LOL Next time I'll keep a list as I go so I can post properly.
Anyway, thanks to everyone here who contributes so generously!
Hope to be able to contribute to the group sometime...
Sorry you're under the weather, but I'm glad our little fun forum contributed to your recovery.
It's always a privilege to welcome someone new, especially when they jump right in and start sharing their art and methods right away like you did on this very nice interpretation.
Not to worry... "Keeping track" takes a little practice. We're a patient and understanding bunch.
