The above scan of an oil painting I did of the Grose Valley (based on a photograph I took from the main lookout at the end of Govetts Leap Road) was the starting point for the following transformations created in Photoshop.

It doesn't look half bad once 'wrangled through' Photoshop's Artistic filter - Sponge.

And here's Photoshop's Artistic - Watercolour, one of my favourite filters.

And for dramatic effect, here's what the Grose Valley painting looks like when put through Photoshop's Fresco filter.

And for the last word, Photoshop's Filter Distort - Global Coordinates always provides an interesting 'take' on the original artwork.
