Painted Dahlia

Posted by Marion (Nanaimo, BC, Canada) on 8 August 2008 in Art & Design and Portfolio.

I used my Virtual Painter 5 for this. You can turn your favorite digital photos into realistic looking paintings such as watercolor, oil painting, pencils, etc. with a few simple mouse clicks. No difficult setup is required. Your photos are turned into paintings in front of your eyes in a few seconds.

I remember in the old days when we had little film filters to sandwich with the negatives to produce a similar result. Never worked very well. Not like this beauty. Virtual Painter seems to work a treat.
