Colored Pencil Rose

Jim, I love your textured watercolor. The effect you achieved is almost like a palette knife painting...reminds me of one my mom had years ago in fact.
-------

For this attempt I placed the rose over a solid white layer and tried painting on a mask in black, white, gray with textured brushes instead of using the art history brush. I haven't decided which method is easier or better or if there's any difference. Does anyone with more experience in PS painting have opinions on the pros and cons of either?

Anyhow, this looks like a cross between colored pencil and crayon on rough paper. I hope.

Phyllis

JBCaffrey - Nice results. Looks like pallete knife painting with loads of heavy pigment.

Phyllis - Great effect as colored pencil rendition. I'm no expert but it works for me. I also like drop shadow.

Rose

Hey all,

This is attempt number two, seems I have a lot in common with Forest Gump. My goal with this picture was to give it a soft pastel effect, but not too soft. I started by duplicating the picture and masking out the flower to another layer. I then used the Art history brush in conjunction with some of the art filters in Photoshop 7. Between the flower mask and the background copy I inserted a blank layer and did a pastel gradient, from the bottom left to the top right. I used about a 40% opacity. To brighten up the background as well as the flower I used various Nik filters (sunshine, classical blur, skylight), and painted them in until I got the look I wanted. Some highlights were also painted in on the flower and shadows were enhanced as well. I added a small amount of noise (three maybe) to bring out some additonal detail. After I had the colors right I applied some sharpening with the Nik sharpener to certain areas of the flower (the setting recommended for printing injet), then I applied the same sharpening to the entire picture as a fill to enhance the contrast a bit. I forgot most of what I did, but I think the idea is somewhere in this message.

Looker, that is excellent. I love the subtle texture, especially along the edges of the petals--gives it a painted look without being too heavy handed.

Crazed cracked peeling...

This is supposed to be part of an old painting, perhaps a fresco on a wall? Anyway the old paint has crazed and cracked and is beginning to peel. After embossing and doing some other things, I used the distort-->displace filter with the crackle.psd texture (which I THINK came with it...dunno since I did add some of my own) to give it the cracked look.

Wow, PJB, that's a great effect you got with Steve's pencil2 filter! Glad you experimented with it...now we know it can do more than just pencil sketches.

Chuck, please upload a smaller picture instead of the big one so we can see it. It is so wide that it doesn't fit on the browser window and I can't see it all at once. I look forward to seeing it!

I tried earlier to upload a pic but it didn't open all the way, so I just deleted it and have another one I liked better anyhow. This was made half with distort-->displace filter variations and half with a mask. After adding displacement textures, I painted on a mask of the actual picture with black and white, using a brush that made blotchy strokes, with a white layer underneath, then blended that merged result over the displaced pic to get this "painting."

PHYLLIS:

Sure glad once wasn't enough for you on this mini-challenge. I've enjoyed your various takes, each unique in character. You set a great example of one whose creativity knows no bounds.

PJB:

One can get some very interesting effects with the Lighting Effects filter -- and you've certainly achieved that here. Nicely done.

CHUCK:

You obviously put a lot of time and work into this image and were rewarded by a very subtle and pleasing effect. My compliments on your diligence.

~Danny~

Framed painting

I am still finding new things in PS7, including the shapes menu. One group of shapes is picture frames, so I thought I'd frame the new painting I was working on. I applied bevel-emboss from layer styles to give the frame shape and texture. The picture itself was partly made with a Van Gogh texture I once made for a challenge here. I applied the texture through the distort-->displace filter.

I sure like this image. Your subtle changes inpired me to do another.

My encore version is based on an application of Smart Blur + Virtual Painter.
