Our One Four Challenge continues. This is a photo processing project hosted by Robyn Gosby at Captivate Me, which always provides great learning. For this week’s wander around the mangroves, I am feeling a little artistic!
Week Three Process
I love playing with Foto Sketcher. Although it feels a bit like cheating, it allows me to combine my passion for photography with my interest in painting. So again, using my Week One edit as the base, I imported the image into Foto Sketcher and selected the Oil Painting pre-set. I then tweaked the settings to my liking and added some texture.
Here is how the image now looks:
I really like what the painting effect and texture have done to the sky and the sand in the foreground.
And you can see the progression through the previous weeks in this slide show:
I look forward to your feedback.
As usual, I encourage you to click on this link to the One Four Challenge group. There is always very inspiring work from other participants.

Looks better a bit lighter, nicely done
This one is a bit more painterly with warmer tones. Thanks Sue.
I like the extra texture with this edit
Thank you Marsha
I like how you add the texture and the warm tones for week 3, Chris. I feel like to try the Foto Sketcher. 🙂
It’s a handy tool Amy, do try it. It is free of the web.
Thank you! 🙂
Looks good but a bit flat. I agree with more painterly. 🙂
Thanks for the feedback.
Nice effect and I see a bit of canvas underlay as well – I know what you mean about feeling like using an app or a filter to do a cool effect feeling like cheating – I know I couldnt do it WITHOUT the tool, and it was my brain that composed all the steps, so its still my work, or so I try to tell myself 🙂
Thanks for those thoughts!
This is beautiful! Like a real oil painting on canvas. Great edit!
Thanks Agnes for the nice feedback
it’s a softer version and I love the texture in this one- the brush strokes!
Hi Cybele, yes this is a better effect with warmer tones.
Hi Cybele, yes this is better one with warmer tones .
It’s nice that others use free editing programs like Foto Sketcher. – I don’t think of it as cheating at all since you can adjust the various techniques on most of those programs. – I like this effect, it adds texture and the sky looks fabulous in this edit.
