Goldcoin - Nice! I really like it. A different approach that turned out to be quite BEAUTIFUL

Trimoon - Just wonderful as usual. I never tire viewing your work.
All those views, they're mine

Danny - Thank you I LOVE your entry, so soft, muted, and VERY inviting. Appreciate the tutorial very much, thanks! How do you find the time

BigAl - What can I say except you can't improve on perfection. Just beautiful

here's my try at this challenge. I was mostly following the watercolor tutorial that Cricket posted, with a bit of tweaking.

Hi Chuck,

thanks, yeah I couldn't decide on what kind of blue to use as a background. I didn't use buzz pro, instead I tried using the filter Other>Mininum instead which got an interesting result.

Wow Wow Wow
You guys have been really busy working on this picture..There are so many beautiful results that I am just amazed..

I have been busy trying to learn to use my new tablet (this has not been really intuative for me a mixed up left hander) I am getting used to it and also have been wading through the Painter instructions..

I used Linda's sketch routine to create a ink sketch.. Then imported it to Painter and Hand Airbrushed some color back into the birds..

Wanda, any tips for a Painter challenged newbie..

Thanks
Jerry

David, really nice your image to me appears to have a water fall behind the birds which gives it depth. It looks handpainted!!

Jerry, wow, that's really impressive I don't think you're going to have any problems with Painter. Tips: All I can do is tell you what I did. I practiced for hours using the brushes, pens, pencils, etc. to become familiar with which one did what. I practiced, praticed, practiced brush strokes. Geez, Jerry, look what you did right off the bat. I guess some of us are just slow learners

CJ, I like the rough glass look you achieved...but I think I'd have erased those distracting black spots left along the edges.

Chuck, your Paint Engine version is wonderful. Guess I'll have to get the whole package...I think I just have a few of its filters that came with PSP.

BK, nice color effects, and the bright narrow edges are a pleasant change from black outlining.

Jim, smoooooth. You are going to be a Painter Pro in no time!

Al, I like the delicate simple look of this drawing, but perhaps it would show up better with more contrast and less overall brightness. Then again, my Mac tends to show pics brighter than Windows does, so I guess I'll just download it and adjust it myself.

PJB, looks like you painted it on homemade paper...what a deep texture! Nice framing too.

Trimoon, the second attempt is IT! BINGO! Love it!

Schwartzie, don't know how you did this watercolor, but it really looks great. I like the way the outline fades in and out...in fact, I'd like to see it even softer, less pure black if possible.

Goldcoin, I couldn't pick either! First I thought I liked the second one (and I do!) but then I looked again at the bright primary colors in the first...and ...well, I like them both for different reasons I guess. In both cases, the texture you chose goes well with the birds.

Wanda and Al, yours look like they came straight from an Audobon Bird Book!

Danny, nice job on that sketch technique...works well with this subject since it's not a very cluttered pic so the blacks on the branches and around the eyes fit in just right!

David, that technique is perfect for this pic! Good choice, and good job. Sometimes art is not just knowing how to do something, but knowing WHEN and WHERE to do it.

Jerry, good job on Linda's sketch technique...daring background color change, but I like the way it blends with the birds.

PJB, daring treatment! What texture and depth! What shine and shimmer! Fun to look at!

Phyllis

My First Photo Art Challenge

This is my first Mini Photo Art Challenge, and as I was kind of stuck with what to do with the winter farm scene, I combined the two and came up with this. I was trying to make you feel like you are watching these two birds out your window on a frosty day. (Please excuse me...I don't know whether they are winter birds or not, but they are now) It is also my first attempt at making the window from scratch which I made in Paint Shop Pro.....
Thank you for letting me post my finished product.
and thanks for the Challenge !

Sheryl
