A Painterly Edit with Repix

Below is a tutorial using only the newly released app Repix.  It is available FREE with option for additional in app purchases.  If you’re looking for a painterly app, this is a great one to add to your app arsenal!

Open Repix and apply the Daubs brush to the entire image, working one area at a time (below)

Daubs Brush
Using Cartoonize brush, focus on the main flowers to apply effect (below)  I did not zoom in in these first steps in order to keep the brush size large.  With Repix, when you zoom in, you get finer strokes with the brushes and tools.

Next the Edger brush, mainly in the center portion of the image, focusing on the flowers and leaves I want to emphasize (below)

Hollywood brush to add a bit of blue in select areas (below)

Next I used the Undoer tool to undo all effects on the center of the main flowers (below)

Zooming in a bit, I applied the Edger again to outline the centers of the main flowers (below)

I then moved to the menu in the top center of the app to get the dropdown menu and lowered the contrast (below)

Lowered the Saturation (below)

Slightly bumped up the Vibrance (below)
