I can hardly believe this is actually my first posting of a mini-art challenge. I've been enjoying all the wonderful submissions and hope to participate more in the future. So, here's a short description (as if anything I do is short - ha ha)...

I used my tried and true method of duplicated the layer. Selected all on dup layer and inverted. Then change mode to grayscale mode without flattening the layers. Change blending mode to Color Dodge and then Filter Blur Gaussian blur until I like the result. To clean up areas I thought were over saturated with this method - I used the color dropper and chose the white areas to match. Then I used the airbrush and cleaned up what I didn't want. After that, I changed back to RGB mode. Saved the picture naming it Grandaughter charcol. Then I opened the original - selected all, copy and pasted into the grandaughter charcol image. Then changed the blend mode to one that worked. In this case hard light - most time I use soft. After that, I used select color range and chose the darkened areas. I applied a filter , brush stroke cross hatch to these areas to soften the image and make it more like a drawing. The last stage was to save it and open it over in Painter 7. I fooled around with the oil brushes and then - that was that! Did I say something about a short description???

Lisa
P.S. Miss you guys!

Jim, beautiful grandaugher Thanks for the opportunity! I painted the photo in Painter Classic using, just add water brush. Opened in PS, dupe, circular vignette, mask, painted until the subject was almost uncovered. Opened in Painter Classic, selected the subject with lasso tool, fill, granite, scale, 360%, opacity, I think around 15%. She's not as refined as I would like, but I see I will never get it posted if I don't do it now!! At the moment my peach trees are calling me, and I have to make jam. Lots of it!! Thanks, Danny for the mini-art challenges

Very nice, Lisa. The charcoal look is perfect for the mood of the picture.

Thanks for the tip, Lisa.

Very effective method and thanks for sharing it...can't wait to try this.

It's a great job...I especially like the way you added brush strokes to the hair...very realistic.

Wanda...the new "master" painter!

Wanda, what I love about your rendition is that it looks like an old master did it...one of those guys who could make a painting look like extremely realistic. Almost like working backwards...making a photo look like a painting that is so good it almost looks like a photo! Excellent job!

Phyllis

I'm not sure if this really qualifies as art but here it is. Lots of layers and masks.

Sure it's art. If a pile of bricks in a London art salon can draw millions of people and thousands of dollars, then something as beautiful as what you've done, not to mention spent time doing, certainly classifies. That's a really good job.

Of course it "qualifies as art" VERY creative, and very cool. You have quite the imagination, but that's what makes for a great Artist. Love it

Thanks for the kind words Wanda.

Slightly off subject but good luck with the jam making. My wife does this too so I know it's a lot of work.
