You will see Rustic Fine Art Photoshop Actions in use in this video - all my workflow in details from start to finish.
Please note that this video is advisory only and you should experience all actions on your images yourself and tailor them to your style.
There is no one recipe for all images so please please do not limit yourself to repeating the editing step by step. Instead try all the actions and invest your time in understanding what adjustments your image really needs and what compliments to your style best.
Other than that this Action Set will really help you to create those dark looking, fine art images and achieve the so much sought after painterly effect.
