Picturing the Arkaba Hills, Flinders Ranges, South Australia

Posted by barbara on May 10, 2015


The Corel Painter Essentials 'sketch' above, created on a WACOM tablet, is a very basic rendition of a landscape that Hans Heysen returned to time and time again, as in the Arkabas. 


This is what the same basic graphic looks like in the Photoshop Sketch Brush filter, an improvement indeed.



The application of the Watercolour filter adds a degree of veritas in my eyes.



Applying the Palette Knife filter provides a more subtle rendition of the original WACOM 'sketch'.



Here's the same image converted via Photoshop's Fresco filter. Viva la difference! Like!



Look what happens when you apply Photoshop's Chalk and Brush Filter. 

For old style artists such as Hans Heysen being able to render an original sketch or watercolour in a trice was unthinkable, as in an off the planet concept. They had no choice but to do it the hard way.
