I love to play around with editing and have a very rudimentary photo editing program I often fall back on using because I don't take the time to learn how to easily work with my Photo Elements software.
In any case. I was curious how different effect filters would alter the appearance of my photograph; interesting results. Two of the filters, Dry Brush and Watercolor, give the photograph a distinctly painterly interpretation.
I want to emphasize that I do not demean or lessen the skill involved in an artist doing an actual dry brush or watercolor painting. It is no easy talent to master. However, I enjoy seeing how my own photograph changes with the application of these effect filters.
