Dusted another one off...

I had to take a crack at this one.

I'm really having fun with these oil paintings, so I thought I'd see what else I could use as a texture to mimick brush strokes.

Ran these ladies through several Paint Engine filters, most notably the impression 1 and 2 and soft pastel chalk. A little bit of underpainting and splatter in there as well. I ended up using a daisy as a texture...I liked the long, thin spokes as strokes.

Overlaid the layer a few times in soft light blend mode over a dark green background. I wanted it to feel luminous, but I couldn't quite get the depth I was after without blowing out the contrast.

That's gorgeous! It really looks like an old world painting. The lighting is wonderful. Great job!

Very, very nice, Amanda.

I'm going to add a post to the "Paint Engine" thread pointing to your creation. It's one of the best uses of PE I've seen.

Bravo.

Chuck, nice impressionistic painting look. I really like your brush stroke style. <snicker>

Amanda, I had no idea Paint Engine could do that! Well...it couldn't have without your creativity and expertise and patience. I have put that one into my keeper file for inspiration...great job!

Chuck, I love those bold brushstrokes. The pic is a bit too large to see all at once though.

Interesting. When I saw the original I thought of the dark heavy portraits you see sometimes. As I went down the thread I saw a series of wonderful, light renditions.

It took me a lot of doing and undoing to get the final look. I buzzed the original lightly before starting the final round to get rid of noise. I used Flaming Pear's Mr. Contrast with dups of thr original blended in for color. Then started on a new copy with Flaming Pear's Melancholytron again with dups of the original blended in for color. Then I worked on blending copies of the 2 previous experiments together with more copies of the original. After I had a good blend, I went to Flaming Pear's lacquer to give it depth. More blending and finally a texture.

Wow Cheryl,


This one is really different ! Thanks for sharing your method
I can find something to do with those filters then
Till now I thought they were often too extreem to be of really good value to me.
Thanks

Gina,

I couldn't agree more! Flaming Pear on it's own is way out there. But I'm finding that it does really nice things when blended with other filters.

If you've got their India Ink filter, you might like this posted by Andrew B. http://www.retouchpro.com/forums/sho...&threadid=6446 I've tried it on a few pics and been very happy with the results.

Wink English Ladies Mini Challenge my way :-))

Hope I am uploading this alright..... This particular image got away from. I used Photoshop paint daubs, kpt noise, xero lithograph and lineart, and ampisoft simplifier. Mostly it was playing with blending and opacity and this rather different image was what came from it all....

Cathy, You go girl.

Here is a van Gogh done in Painter Classic. First erased some of the background (especially that uhgg shirt ). Then applied Effects, Focus, Soften. Cloned a copy and ran Esoterica Auto Van Gogh.

Thank you Mauler,and again I thank for your Interests..
But I am with my own limitations and It is not at all to be delivered authenticaly or it is nothing but practice..
I do appreciate everyone in a deserving manner But , normaly I do not go after someone blindly..
One should allways have a mistake, then only it will lead to a discovary..

Ok now my turn, My ladies..
It is Filter>Brush strokes>Crosshatch+Sprayed strokes and many times levels in RGB..
Thank you all

They say that nothing today is etched in stone, but...

I believe these two lovely English Ladies have been truly immortalized in all the lovely old world paintings. Lots of good ideas there.

I wanted to try something a bit different....



I used the control+alt+~ thing to select the luminosity, inverted that, and applied some bevel and emboss in a layer style. The rest is just a lot of texturing and contrast.
