A long time ago when I took part of a photography community in Google+ I had a chance to know what was paintography and I loved it. I learned how to do it until I could use my own set up. However Photoshop changed a few things, which made the process not feasible. I then learned a work around and also heard about clone painting.
It has been for a long time I enjoy the process of making a photograph to look like a painting in camera through movements or in post processing as a paintography. As I moved from Photoshop to Affinity I started to play with their mixer brush with the same intent. I got to know Jamuna‘s wonderful work and I was very inspired. She makes use of clone painting that was something that I wanted to learn more.
With some glitches happening in Affinity, I’ve finally reached a similar result that I am happy with. What I love about this technique is that you can create your own background, which means you have more freedom. You don’t need to rely solely in compositing. The mixer brush in affinity works differently from photoshop and I am now getting my hands on it. I am ready to play as I always wanted with paintography! :-). Picture is available in several print formats.
