Flypaper Textures

Voyageur map

I’ve been asked if I also use other ‘enhancement programs’
Both Jill and I have programs such as ‘Lucis’
but I’ve never shown a picture using it.
You can use these programs on your images before following our recipes.
A while ago I described how I get my painterly look before texturising.
I now repeat it here:

“To achieve the painterly effect, I simply use the ‘Colour Noise filter’ at a very low setting, then sharpen this with ‘Poster Edges’ Filter at around 10%.This pulls it together again, the other layers are those with various light levels at differing depths, I sometimes also use the ‘Paint Daubs’ or ‘Water Colour’ filters at a low setting and then Poster Edges @ 10% max”.

Don’t you find the ‘before’ a little bit ‘David Hockney’?
This beach picture was treated first as above to get the painterly look.
Then to hide the Hockney and frankly update that look,
I’ve not had to do too much.
Again from the bottom I started with:

Raw Linen – Hard Light @ 52%
Elysium – Overlay @ 35%
Voyageur Map – Overlay @ 50%
Voyageur Map again – Overly 16%
Both have some paper texture brushed off the beach section.
Finally the top layer is a doubled up layer of the base image
@ soft light 12%
