Vienna Flower Shop

As I was processing some of my images from Vienna this struck me as the perfect shot to do some digital painting. The flowers were so vibrant and really popped of the screen that I tried a few different versions before finding the one I really liked.

I used Topaz Impression to create this image, it’s one of my favourite Topaz plug-ins. Starting with the base image I sampled different pre-sets before settling on the one that closely matched my vision and then I started adjusting the brush strokes, amount of paint, blending mode, etc.

  5. Gorgeous effect, Edith. Subtle…the painterly strokes were more evident when I enlarged it. Lovely image.

  6. Oh wow, liked the post based on the small photograph. I had no idea you did a digital painting or of it until reading the post. Awesome.

  7. Really a beautiful image, glowing in it’s vivid colors. I checked out that Topaz Impression, seems like a great tool, but seems a bit pricey. Thank you for sharing your work, Edith.

  8. That’s a plug-in I haven’t tried but this is certainly a beautiful image, Edith. Like a precise Watercolour. I’m impressed. And a very good choice of image for this type of processing.
