Duplicated and cropped, and did a linear burn blend mode. Liked it, and flattened it. Selected the background and did a KPTFraxplorer, and then darkened it and changed colors with hue/sat. Sharpened with KPTX. Adjusted levels on both background and flower to suit.

Chuck, the sepia toned lotus is quite beautiful and sophisticated. I picture it in a 4 by 6 version above an off-white leather sofa in a modern living room done in all neutral colors. Do you have the time to paint me one that size?

Blacknight, I see you are doing wonderful things with KPT...isn't it fun! I like both of these a LOT, and I went back and forth a few times and can't pick a favorite. I love the colors you used...just gorgeous!

Here's one painted by an artist in a real hurry!

Well at least it's more colorful than the last one.

I really like the psychedelic one, Phyllis. Isn't it peculiar how the same image can be done with different colors and textures and evoke different feelings in the viewer? SOMEONE will like anything created, because it will strike a chord in them somewhere. Art. Ain't it grand!

Oh, Chuck, you've gotta tell us what that texture is and how you got it to shine like that. It's wonderful! The picture has such a beautiful sheen to it! Looks a bit like the impasto effect you get with Painter.

Very profound observation. Yep, that's art all right!
