Early Oil Painting

Posted by

This was taken a month ago. I like the more muted fall colors. This was done with the Oil Painting preset in Topaz's Simplify.

Canon PowerShot G11 1/320 second F/4.5 ISO 400 19 mm

Charming ! This reminds me a fabulous version of the old paint-by-numbers kits. Those kits never had selections as lovely as these though. ;-) Smashing!!

Stunning colors and effect.
I'm still emersed in the beauty of your waterfall on yesterday's post.
I need to find exactly where that is on the map.

@Barbara: It's just off of Hwy. 135 between Roseburg and Diamond Lake, on the way up to Crater Lake NP.

Some of the colors that await us this time of year are enough to be questioned in a painting and yet here they are for real ! Lovely presentation here.

Gary from Cochise County, United States

I enjoy these muted colors also. Especially against the bold green.

The truth is that it would be a delicate painting but I prefer it as photography jo. To be a painting technique that I use would have to use the palette instead of the brush and apply a lot of paint! Give oil-based relief! I love the way that a perfect image full of rich hues! A hug, y muchos besos amigo Jack! Adela

Topaz's Simplify. is perfectly suited to this picture, this treatment is yet difficult to use, here it gives the picture a kind of beautiful simplicity! It's fresh and colorful ..

There's just enough treatment to soften the details down to a painterly quality. Great work Jack.
