Roses - Dry brush

Discussion in 'Macro, Flowers, Insects, and Greenery' started by viewfinder, Jul 8, 2005.

  1. Bored, so tried a few roses with dry brush treatment. Breaking the rules I know but hope you find them interesting.

    Comments and feedbacks most welcome.




  2. Hey Jonathan, I am really interested. I will have to try this technique. Good job for sure, the images are beautiful.
  3. I like them a lot, a cross between a picture and a painting, the texture of the flowers is so nice it gives them a smoothness.

    What rules? The only rules I know of are that you post images that you wish to share with your friends here at the Cafe. No other rules. :lol:

    Very nice shots. I really like the effect. I just got my Total Training DVD's for PS CS that I got from Scott Sherman. I'm hoping to learn more about these kinds of techniques. :wink:

    I see no rules broken. Are there rules in art.

    Beautiful image, beautiful art.

    Thank you
  6. Dry brush settings

    Thanks all for the comments. Glad that you find the dry brush treatment of interest.

    To let you in on the secret, I usually try this before I throw away the bad out-of-focus images... ;-)

    The procedure is quite simple:
    • Select the Artistic -> Dry Brush filter in Photoshop.
      Adjust the filter parameters to suit.
      Click OK.
    Settings applied specific to the above images are:
    • Brush Size: 2
      Brush Detail: 8
      Texture: 1
