Extreme weather seems to be the norm almost all over the world this year. Here in the South of England our problem is constant rain and gales, causing flooding both on the coast and inland. Many people have been flooded out for weeks, and major rail and road networks have been disrupted. I am lucky in that I have not been seriously affected by the flooding, but I am oh so sick of the constant wind and rain.
One of the effects of the weather is that it has been very difficult to get out and take photographs, so I have fallen back to playing with the ones I've already got, in photoshop.
With the help of some textures from 2-lil-Owls this box of flowers was transferred into this
And by adding textures and a filter the national gallery takes on a painterly look
Which do you like best? before or after?
Because of the weather I've spent more time painting and less time taking photos, but I am really enjoying taking photos of my art work and digitally enhancing them by adding texture, effects, or combining them with other pictures.
This version just has the usual Lightroom enhancements
This has had textures added and been combined with another photos

This is one I finished painting today and have been playing with ever since!
