Handy Hoarwall

Sometimes, what begins as a joke ends up as a good workout in Photoshop and begets another image into the bargain.

So, without further ado:

I never did get the above image quite right; it's a work in progress, but I am pleased with the "test" image created in trying to work things out.

Peppers Al Fresco

And on we go.

FAB U LOUS! Do you plan on marketing these, because if you do, I want to be first in line. I particularly like the pepper. What is your process?

Hi Judie,

The peppers are photos I took of red bell peppers; I just cropped and arranged the cropped images on another document. I applied the fresco filter to each one. I had such a struggle with the hands; I can't even remember exactly what all I have done to it!

I like the peppers, too. It would make a great poster.

What I really need to be doing is getting back to some paintings I have not touched since before Christmas, but I plan to play around with some of my photos instead. What program do you have that has a fresco filter??

ChrisJ said...


I have Photoshop. Go under the filters pull-down menu, the click "artistic" and scroll down to "fresco."

It's really interesting to see what happens when you "filter" an image.

It's so easy, it feels like cheating somehow, yet I really do like the results with the various filters.
