Photo Painting


My Dad is pretty skilled (in general, but also…) in Photoshop. He makes our very own family Christmas card every year and let’s just say it’s unique. 🙂

Something else my Dad does in Photoshop is create “paintings” as in photo paintings a.k.a. photos processed to look like paintings. Fake paintings? Whatever you want to call them they are pretty neat.

So here is an example. I gave my Dad one of my favourite photos from Venice I took last summer and viola…here is the creation. Printed on a canvas it would look pretty close to a real painting. 😉


And the original photograph for comparison.

Venice (23)What do you think? Would you buy a photo painting for your walls?
