Thanks Neve.

The flatness, (is that a word?), was what I wanted. A great many of Lautrec's works were sketches with little detail, as in the attached lithograph that he did for the Moulin Rouge.

And thank you again for the nice comments.

I've got the Buzz Simplifier and use it quite often - I don't dislike your rendition Steve but it just appears a bit on the flat side, perhaps requires some highlights/catchlights added for better effect.

Buzz is by far the best plugin I ever bought. It often surprises me with new effects that I had not been aware of, while I am working on something else entirely.

I always appreciate the nice comments & suggestions I receive on the forums here. Many thanks.

Craig, your comments made my day. If you think that Lautrec, (my favorite artist), would like it, then I know I did ok.

It was done with a combination of stacks in Buzz, including watercolor and simplifiers. I usually move the settings around to accommodate each image, so it would be hard to give you the exact settings.

Thankfully it sounds as if i am forgiven and maybe understood but i had just found a good excuse, according to our esteemed daily newspaper Brummies are the rudest brits ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !

OK Palms........you're under arrest! Out and out plagiarism
that's what it is! 8-)

Have fun. Isn't that what this web site is for? I have no problem with your interpretation. Looks fine to me. And I confess, I have done the same thing with images other people have posted.

I never forget that art, like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder.

steve,

you're welcome

and palms, if you're the rudest of brits, then i think i would enjoy england

and i love the steve/craig/palms combo! very cool

and, i've been secretly working on my own 'smudged cat', thinking of you the whole time i was doing it and our conversation on this from the other thread. i just couldnt resist the attempt again when i saw this floral picture. but, i cheated a bit. i cut the size of the work down. after thousands of strokes, i just couldnt wait to post it

Craig

Steve - my choice of the word 'flat' was incorrect - 'definition' would have been a wiser choice...!

WOW
Craig excellent, love the definition it brings to the flowers, the crop is good, been debating wether if you see the whole picture if you would perhaps loose some of the definition ?
If cutting the size down is "cheating" then so is removing the background
Will we be seeing your secret cat ?
