Welcome to EarlK Design!

The EarlK Design blog consists mainly of entries that show how to do things using Adobe Photoshop that I hope you will find helpful and give your creative mind more tools to work with.

I use Adobe Photoshop CS6, and sometimes Adobe Illustrator CS5, Lightroom 5, and Corel Painter X. However, I believe that much of what I show can be done using Photoshop Elements.

Beyond Layers with Kim Klassen February 18, 2012

I am currently taking the Beyond Layers class with Kim Klassen. In Day 10, Kim showed how to achieve a painterly look by using heavy texturing. I recently got a new lens for my Canon EOS 40D DSLR camera. I got the EF-S 60mm f/2.8 Macro USM lens. Using this lens I took some photos of a set of pastels. I used one of these photos for this example. Here is my original image. It has been cropped to fit into my 11 x 8.5-inch landscape page.

Then, after following along with Kim in her demo video, I ended up with the following.

Personally, I prefer the original brighter image. I do not think this was a particularly good image on which to try the technique. But, I wanted to use my new lens, so this is what I used. I guess it really depends on what the image would be used for. This heavily textured image may be just the right thing for some layout.

That's all for today from me, Earl.

Enjoy what you do! It is important that you do.

I agree with you. I like the first image better too...I'm a sucker for colored pencils, crayons, pastels, etc. Jealous I didn't take that course. It sounds great.
