The Art of Dennis Mook

Here is a picture that Dennis Mook sent us recently. He started with a photo, used Exposure to achieve the vintage feel, and then Snap Art for the oil paint. I think he was very successful at making it look like a real painting.

You can click the picture to see it larger. The canvas texture is quite noticeable at the larger size. In Snap Art you can adjust that on the Canvas Tab or even turn it off.

    Wish we had step by step details. I’m having the hardest time with Snap Art.

      Take a look at a detailed walk through of how I used the Oil Paint style on a portrait here. Our videos are also quite helpful. Each one is just a few minutes long, so they are pretty painless.

      After that if you are still having trouble then post here again and I’ll try to get Dennis to give us some details of this project.

    This is awesome, very very well done. There is a lot to be said for how well Snap Art does, it works well to make the beginner’s like myself end up with work that looks like real art, but to see it in the hands of a real artists, give people like me something to work for. I love the program and the work of real artists. This is great thanks for sharing
