Photo Art Friday

This week's Photo Art Friday is supposed to be Surprise!  Not sure that what I have chosen to do is much of a surprise but wanted to work on painting in Photoshop Elements using brushes so I literally painted over the cat with colours selected using the colour picker to make it look like a painting.  I converted the background to black and white and then applied the cutout filter.  Had a lot of fun but it is quite painstaking and I realised that artists who draw and paint in Photoshop must take hours to do it.

My second picture I did in ArtRage a wonderful art package that allows you to 'trace' over a photo using a brush such as a watercolour brush and it automatically picks up the right colours - much easier!


  1. Lovely work, especially I like the second.

    Regards and best wishes

  2. What lovely effects...and sweet, furry friends! :)

  3. These are wonderful Ann! I love the toes in the lower right hand corner of the first one! Thank you for introducing us to ArtRage - well I didn't know about it yet. Thank you, too, for sharing your photo art with PAF.

  4. Oh, these are so interesting !

  5. Goodness, these are really very lovely. Since I own two different programs already, probably can't justify ArtRage, but really do like the outcome. Thanks so much for sharing. It is very painterly.
