Photo Art Friday–waves of inspiration

Our photo art challenge this week was to use one of Bonnie’s textures.  I chose her most recent one and then pulled several photos from the beach to play with. 

painterly-colour-burn

One layer of the painterly texture using colour burn blending mode

painterly-linear-light

The painterly texture again this time on linear light blendign mode – love how much it looks like paint

painterly-darken

On this one the blending mode is darken – a mode I rarely use but here it creates magic

This exercise was a good reminder that one texture layer can create wonders – something I need to remember. Thanks to Bonnie for the fabulous textures.  Check out what others have created here.

Lovely processing with the 'Painterly' texture Helena! Love the middle one with the light sparkling on the water. Using Darken can sometimes produce such interesting results as you demonstrate with your last image. Beautiful!

I like these very much, especially the second and last ones, the texture gives a vintage feel that seasides lend themselves to perfectly :)

Great use of the Painterly texture (isn't it cool). I liked them all but the last 2 were my favorites.

Lovely work. I really like the second one.

all three are great, and Bonnie's texture "Painterly" is a favorite of mine too!
while they are all great, I'm an advocate of the breaking waves!

Love them all Helena! I'm always amazed at what we can do with our photos :)

These are stunning, especially the second one. However great the textures, it takes a good photo to make the picture so lovely in the first place - yours are super.

All are beautiful; but I must say that I absolutely "love" the middle one. It is superb. Thanks so much for sharing. I am visiting through Bonnie's PAF today. Karen
