On this I isolated the Kingfisher and applied a LucisArt ED plugin and then used the Photoshop  Oil paint filter. I inverted the mask, then darkened the background by using "Apply Image" in photoshop.

Absolutely beautiful in all respects, Peter! Your subject marries perfectly with the techniques used and the end result is a wonderful work of art that would grace any wall. Well done!

Impressive process and wonderful results, Peter. The kingfisher really pops against the neutral background.
