"Speed bonnie boat, over the sea to Skye....!"
Of the Isle of Skye and filled in the bg of Mal’s photo.
New layer, filled with white, used Transparency Button.
Acrylics/Wet Soft Acrylic 20 – Default
Used a circular motion on clouds first.
Cloners/Soft Cloner to reveal the blue sky.
(Otherwise did not paint the blue sky at all)
Acrylics/Wet Acrylic 20
Stroked all over fields and hills following the contours.
This left all of this very streaky.
Acrylics/Thick Opaque 10
Went over Hat and Jacket
Lowered Opacity and stroked face etc.
Brought out face details and homes in the hills bg.
Cloners/Oil Blenders 20
My first try using these – went all over the streaky parts
Of fields and hills, also jacket.
Cloners/Soft Cloner – went all over jacket bringing
Back some detail.
I did the Hills, Fields Sky on one layer.
Separate layer for Mal and his clothing.
I duplicated both these layers to saturate the colours.
Multiply mode only on BG hills and sky only.
Dropped all layers.
Added a canvas texture in PSP8.1
Thoroughly enjoyed this, took about an hour or so. I've submitted a thumbnail of the image with its new bg prior to painting it.
