In this video we look at creating an Oil Painting effect.  Before we start we can add a few more gulls to add interest to an empty area of the sky.  We then give the image a ‘Lowry’ look making the people into matchstick men. Then using the Oil Paint filter and blending it with the Filter Gallery we can achieve the Oil Painting effect.

Some of the topics include:-

  • Patch tool
  • Smart Objects
  • Oil Paint Filter
  • Filter Gallery
  • Adjustment Layers
