It’s now week 4 of Robyn’s One Four Challenge. My Girl on The Beach this week is a pastel version:
After I opened and cropped the original in Photoshop Elements, I lightened shadows, duplicated that original layer, then applied the paint daubs filter, setting the blend mode to soft light at 66% opacity. I duplicated that paint daubs layer, applied the rough pastels filter on sandstone, and set the blending mode to hard light. I then repeated the last steps (duplicated, rough pastels, etc.) and this version emerged.
To summarize, since this is week 4, following are the original photo as well as each week’s versions:
Which one do you prefer?
