I've never done so much gardening in my life!
Duplicated background.
New blank layer filled white.
Selected bird copied pasted and flipped horizontal, transformed smaller.
Selected and deleted so much foliage my hands are sore.
Guess it was just a lot of pruning!
Ran it through underpainting filter, then faded.

Shalford

the one thing I really like about your rendition is the overall look, Mr Audobaun would have painted this bird just like your image all of the other entries are really good but lack the extra attention you gave to the overwhelming foliage ... i hope you dont get Carpal Tunnel, geez you didnt even get paid!!!
nice job!

Thanks Wizard

I really should be paying our own garden as much attention!
I don't know which are weeds and which are flowers.
Hope I didn't cut the wrong stuff out of the image.

Cheers
Steve

Excellent Steve,

The white background really gives this the Audubon look.
Not too cluttered, just the right amount of foliage.
I like his twin brother in the background.

This is soooo, soooo excellent.

I haven't had much time to work on anything lately but home renovations. Yuk!!!

Then I come in and look at this. Okay, I don't have to try it. Steve is now our Audubon.

Thank You Lorraine.

I've never been an Audubon before, many other things, but not that.
Retouchpro is so much better than decorating or renovating home.
Not sure my wife would agree with those sentiments.
I've been nosey and peeked at some of your work, "Dunes" is wonderful, hope to see more soon. (Forget the renovating!!)

Many thanks again

Steve

Cathy - Thanks a lot for your comment.

If I could be as good as your "GGGrandmother Henrietta" I will be very very pleased.
I look forward to more of your submissions!

Kind Regards

I have just noticed your submissions, they look great.
I will comment ASAP but it's late here at the moment and I have to be up at 5am.

All the best

Yeh man, you've done it. This must have taken an age to do.
Spot on mate.

Staying true to my word I'm going about everyone offering comment and criticism. Clearly this is a popular post with everyone and for good reason! I looked at this challenge and ran the other way at a great rate of knots! You've done a superb job on this one. You must have the patience of Job!
