Landscape Paintings

Here I am trying to create landscape paintings using photo apps – mostly Waterlogue which has a dozen different watercolour styles.

Ireland’s Bloody Foreland is sort-of okay but the Waterlogue app seems to need more details in the image to be successful.

This misty scene in Canada probably worked the best of the Waterlogue batch but then I wondered what would happen if I sandwiched it with a photo..
Sooke scene with fog on the water in WaterlogueI redid the watercolour in Waterlogue, this time opting for ‘no borders’, and then overlaid it with two other photos, both using the ‘Multiply’ Blend mode in Photoshop; both with different degrees of opacity. There was a third photo with seagulls in it – the seagulls looked great but the rest of the image conflicted so I left it out.Sooke scene with fog on the water in Waterlogue overlaid with photosAnother attempt at overlaying the photo over the Waterlogue watercolour. I had originally labelled the watercolour ‘too bitty’ because of all the white flecks in it. Once overlaid the white flecks were substantially subdued and I rather like the result.
