Thanks, Swampy & Craig.

I wiped out the outlines in the trees and I'm glad I did - I think that's what made the difference.

Cool Heres to the 1st...

I'm not use to recording my moves but the best I can remember is this...

I took out the blue sky - I ran the upper part of the building thru a plug in "terazzo" [oldie but a goodie] - a lil motion blurr and a redish gradient thru the sky. Oh The redish part [the sky] was a seperate layer. Which I copied twice I darkened the underlying layer. Then I used the eraser on the top layer and started erasing [like a pok a dot effect]



Yeah yeah that's the ticket

Man I hope I did this right....

Greeniuspix.. Rome is buring? Great effect in the sky. The only thing I might suggest it to mask out the red gradient in the area of the dome so that the gold dome doesn't pick up the red tint. It kinda looks like the sky color is mixing in with the beautiful gold detailing in the dome.

Greeniuspix... Welcome to the forum and thanks for leaping into the pool. Ya done just fine, here.

Good job on the rememberin', too. I've got Terazzo myself, but it's been quite a while since I've used it.

Keep the artwork coming. I like your creative style.

~Danny~

So simple.

Dup, Toadies set to Overlay, Impressionist using CherylH's fine brush. Flatten. Dupped and then CherylH's finger paint 1 with adjuste opacity and some selective erasing. Flatten. Auto Contrast. Done.

Hotel des Invalides (Paris)

Hello,
Here is my submission.
By the way, this building is spelled "Hotel des Invalides" and is located in Paris. It used to be kind of a hospital during Napoleon's days, and as never been a hotel as we now know them.

I Love Paris In The Springtime!

How many remember a song sung by Robert Goulette by the title above? I believe he sang it in Camelot. I could hear it as I worked upon this picture. Thank you so very much for sharing.

klassy,

"i love paris in the springtime.
i love paris in the fall.
i love paris in the winter, when it's drizzling.
i love paris in the summer, when it's sizzling."

yup. i remember. we used to do that in acapella.
