I LIKE THE FIRST BEST—BUT THE THIRD IMAGE INTRIGUES ME!
Every time I capture an image that I think would look good in a painted type format (digitally created), I usually try a few different versions to determine what presentation looks best. Each style creates a completely different look of the same subject matter. As an example I have attached three styles I used on a roadside cafe in New England.
The first example is a very subtle impasto style. Usually with the impasto style the brush strokes are bold a colorful. In this case, I toned the brush strokes down to a very subtle look.
In this next version I went with an old world “Gothic” style, which stays with strong earth tones.
The last example is a fauvism style, which creates abstract oriented shapes and surreal colors.
Same setting, completely three different looks. You may or may not like any…
