thanks, patricia

that technique has a lot of variations that could be done. i went heavier on the viewable area with the visible opacity, but could have easily gone otherwise. colors and textures could certainly be introduced, much the way bert suggested and with even a wider variety. i could also have been more selective in what i allowed to be seen as well. one could also use 'edges' for some more dramatic effects also. it's a great technique with a ton of potential.

Ok then, here's my go at it...it's a wee bit different for I left more colour to it, but I'm pleased it's a start!

It's brilliant, Craig, and you certainly did sort it out severely! But in very good form, I might add!

thank you, maureen

it actually involved two blank raster layers rather than one and rather than fill the 2nd one, i used it as sort of a screening filter with white and black 'paint' only. and rather than use a layer mask on the first one, i used the eraser to lessen the opacity of the fill. there were also several blend modes and a duplicate of the desaturated image which then had a high pass run on it. i [i[really[/i] wish these paint programs kept a stored record of the workflow, one that you could save with the picture and print out separately!
