Young Girl on Beach …

Here is another on of my Photoshop ” paintings ” … they take me a while to create, but I believe that they take less time than if I actually had created them in Corel Painter .  I would classify them more as an Impressionistic style of painting, since I am ” smearing ” the pixels.   There is still some detail in the face and the skin, and you do get a feel for the water and sand and the shape of the waves.  I have done much more Photoshop work on this image of the young girl than I did on the other Irish paintings that I have posted.  This is really just the start of the learning process for me … however, I still like to put these out and hear any comments that you might have.  The first has just more “canvas” around the image and I did an edge treatment to give it a more interesting look  …

Now, this is the same image without the border treatment.  I have posted this image earlier and I said that I planned to work it up as a painting in the future.  So if you want to find the original photograph, just search ” beach portraits ” on this blog and it will pop-up along with several other beach portrait posts  You will see a big difference … however, you really have to see a printed example to get a good idea of how this “painting” shows up.  This is something new that I am working on for next year and obviously I have a long way to go on my technique before I offer it  as a print option.  But, I do see this type of work in my future and I think that it has a lot of possibilities for a whole range of subjects.

Thanks for looking … I have a wedding that I did with Bud back in October that I plan on posting next.  Thanks for looking and please let me hear your comments about these … Frank
