My first mini-challenge

OK -- I'm up for this.

What I did was duplicated the original and boosted the saturation and contrast and lowered the brightness somewhat.

Then I duplicated this layer and applied Filter>Impressionist>Paint>Fluorescent Palette Knife. I set the blending mode to 'Lighten' and added a layer mask to restore some of the detail to the dome.

I thought that some of the detail needed to be removed from the trees so I duplicated the BG again and applied Filter>Impressionist>Chalk>Detailed Opaque Strokes. Blending was set to 'Luminosity'. Again, I added a layer mask and restored some of the architectural detail to the Hotel and some detail to the street scene.

Thanks to Danny Raphael for introducing me to the Impressionist plug-in and for his instruction in the use of layer masks.

A belated welcome to you, Icewynd. Looks like you have a good eye for Impressionist. Hope to see more.

I found another toy in Painter8: Sponges>GlazingSponge60. Started with some cropping and contrast enhancement. In Painter8, cloned the image with BristleOilsCloner15. Then went to work w/ the GlazingSponge, using several applications of different colors. This ruined the sky, and of course I did this on the original cloned copy. So, I cloned the sky back in on a new layer and lowered the opacity. Finished w/ some texture in Elements2.

Icewynd and Mark, your use of the tools is impressive. You both have great paintings. I've never used the fluorescent palette knife. And as I'm just beginning to explore Painter, I'll have a look at that glazing sponge too.

Great job.

Janet

How in the world did I miss this? (Lots of activity of late, and I just missed it. Sorry about that. You weren't being ignored. Really. )

What a *TERRIFIC* first post.

If this were a yardstick, I'll take credit for 1". Take a well deserved bow for the other 35"!

Don't stop now! Keep them coming.

~Danny~

re: another AHB mess

Not a mess; an AHB creative experiment!

Did I get this right?

You:
* Created a new layer and used AHB to paint it
* Duplicated the original BG, applied Impressionist & set blend to Soft Light?

thanks

yes, you got it right... or, for me to be precise - i created white fill layer above the BG (i didn't want the BG to look through); then 3 empty layers above it for different levels of detail of AHB (for brush sizes cca 60, 40, and 20 bottom to up); 60 for sky and trees, 40 for trees and building, and 20 for building)...
then, i thought it needs something, so i dupped BG, and put it on top, applied impressionist, and changed blend to soft light

Mixed two Van Goghs for this one.

I blended Jeff's Van Gogh preset with my own (hopfully synergistically) to create this rendering. Sharpened, bumpmapped and added canvas texture on just the lighter colors using Cybia's Alphaworks eliminate black to isolate just the lighter colors.
