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.

Texture Tuesday with Kim Klassen . . . 20 August 2013


We have for this week's Texture Tuesday with Kim Klassen a Free & Easy version.

Kim has mentioned an online class by Sebastian Michaels on learning true “Fine-Art Photoshop” techniques to master the essential skills that will elevate your use of Photoshop and enable you to create canvas-worthy works of art. I am taking the class. It seems to be fantastic. So, you will see a little of what I have been learning in the class.

One of the first techniques Sebastian showed was to use Snapshots in the History Panel of using various Filter Gallery filters on the image . . . make a Snapshot of that filter . . . use a different filter . . . make a Snapshot . . . and do this for several different filters creating a Snapshot of each. Then Use the History Brush . . . select to paint using one of the filters . . . and paint in that effect of certain areas of the image. Select a different filter's Snapshot and paint with it in areas . . . etc. This way you can  create some wonderful images.

Here is an example of what I did using one image of a tulip blossom that I took at the Lauritzen Gardens, Omaha, Nebraska, in March 2010.

Here is the original flower.


I opened the image in Photoshop CS6. I used the photo in the proportions that my camera gives me, which is 3648 x 2736 pixels. I did not crop the image.


Then I used different Filter Gallery filters to add the effect to the duplicate image layer. Each time I found a filter that I liked, I made a Snapshot of that in the History Panel. I did this for four different filters. Then using the History Brush, I painted in the various Snapshots over parts of the flower. In this manner I created this image which I believe is a more artsy version. And, I had full control of what I did during the process. Thus I feel like it is my creation with Mother Nature's initial help.


Next, I added in Kim's texture kk_carol at Multiply Blend Mode and 100% Opacity. This gives a nice unifying color and texture to the entire image.


And, lastly I added in my signature at the bottom right.


And, that is how I went from this


to this.


Please visit Texture Tuesday with Kim Klassen and see all the other entries for this week. There is some wonderful work posted there. You will enjoy.


That's all for now.

Live life fully.


Earl

Love the image. The flower photo on its own is very pretty, but the final process looks like a vintage silk flower. Nice!!

So beautifully edited.
I really like the soft tinted colors on the flower :)
