After a swing through Northern NSW a few years ago, I did a quick 'sketch' of Tenterfield's granite hills on a WACOM tablet in Chalk mode.

Fascinated by the 'loaves and fishes' outcome offered by Photoshop's Artistic Fliters and other related functions, I ran the original skecth through the CutOut function (above).

My next experiement was to see what Photshop's Filter Distort - Glass might make of my sketch. I don't mind it one little bit.

And I am also quite partial to the application of Photoshop - Artistic - Smudgestick filter, though I had to try out a number of options to get an outcome I was happy with.

Here's Photoshop's Palette Knife, an end product I am very happy with.

What a contrast with Photoshop's Pixillate - Pointillise filter.

As always, the result of applying Photoshop's Artistic - Fresco filter (above) is broodingly moody and intense. If only my brain could 'paint' like that first up.
