Frank,

Since you expressed an interest in this style of editing but were concerned with the labor and time aspect, I thought I would take what I have learned and throw something together quickly to see what could be done. The learning curve is not too bad, once you get the hang of it. I did this picture from start to finish in about 15 minutes. It is rough, but it gives you a sense of what you can do. This is the second picture I have painted over now.

I invite anyone who wants to take the original photo off the web to do so and experiment with and re-post it here with your own personal treatment for comparison. Please have fun with it.

Here is the original image for you;

hi scott-

neat effect. the waves came out pretty good, but the hair doesn't look right.

i saw something similar at a framing shop, you give them a photo and they'll "paint" it on canvas in acrylic i think. looked interesting, but a bit expensive.

Hi Ricky,

Here is an adjusted image. I think it might be helpful for those not familiar with Paint to see the process of some of the changes that are possible. There is a lot in Paint that is not available in PS and vise versa. I smoothed out the hair and clothes a bit and painted out a bit more of the wave then gave it some depth to make it more like an oil painting look;

Thanks for your compliment and constructive critisizm regarding the hair. I liked the frizzy, curly look of the girl's hair in the original image and tried to bring it out in the painting. I smoothed it out a bit but I am not sure what it is you think was wrong about it. Could you please elaborate for me and I will try to fix it.

Thanks again.
Scott
