This is the second week for Robyn’s Fine Art One Four challenge. Once again, my original photo is:
In Photoshop Elements, I duplicated the image, opened the dry brush filter and played with the settings until I got a look I was happy with. I then duplicated the Dry Brush layer, opened the smart blur filter and again played with the settings. This created a black image with white lines. I then inverted this layer to make it black lines on white and set the blending mode at soft light and adjusted the saturation a bit.
The final step was to create a solid color adjustment layer, using white as the color – then setting my color to black, I selected the dry media brush and brushed over the mask until the portions of the image I wanted were visible. I was quite happy with the results.
