Creative interpretations: Country Scene

Here is a picture I took on Sunday whilst out walking in the Peak District of the UK. It shows one of several semi-paved paths leading up onto an area known as Stanage Edge, once the scene of a thriving mill-stone manufacturing industry (there are many long abandoned mill stones still lying around in the long grass), now a popular area for both walkers and rock climbers.

Here's my first attempt at "art", an action called ART-Oils by Danny Raphael from an article by Ted LaCasio in the Photoshop CS Supplement in the Oct/Nove issue of Photoshop User Magazine.

I adapted a methos detailed at http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/re...ssage=10263013 tro get a pen and ink sketch.

Copy background layer and desaturate it

Copy desaturated layer, invert it and change Blend Mode to Color Dodge.
Filter >> Blur >> Gaussian Blur with moderate blur to draw the sketch lines (try 7-12 pix)

Add curves layer and pull the curve downward from the middle (half way down) to increase lines contrast.

Copy background a third time and move it to the top of the stack. Apply Filter >> Artistic >>Dry brush (size=5, brush detail=2, texture=1) and set Blend Mode to Multiply.

Add Hue&Sat layer and check Colorize. Other settings: Hue 45, Sat 32

New layer the ALT Merge Visible
Adjustments > Shadow/Hightlight (Shadow 50% Highlight 25%)

Levels layer (Input Levels 9, 1.16, 232)
