Hour 18. Using the Artistic Filters > Simulating Oil Painting

Simulating Oil Painting

There are as many styles of oil painting as there are people who paint; all the way from ultrarealistic, tight little brush drawings to big, splashy, abstract swipes of color. Traditional painters begin a new canvas by creating an underpainting, which lays out the scene with a big brush in blocks of color showing little or no detail. When they have the basic underpainting done, they go back with smaller brushes and add detail.

Underpainting

In Figure 18.9, I’m applying the Underpainting filter to the seagull and beach photo we used last hour. To use the Underpainting filter yourself, choose Filter, Artistic, Underpainting. Select a brush size—a big fat brush for larger splotches of color and less detail, or a smaller, finer brush for more detailed work. The Texture Coverage setting adjusts the thickness of the paint and its coverage of the texture you select.
