Here's my first attempt.

I used the select color range to knockout the black background and replaced it with white. Then, I used Artistic - Color Pencil filter, followed by Find Edge which was then faded, selection inversed and a drop shadow applied.

Phyllis, I believe that's the best watercolor effect I've seen anywhere!

Here's my humble offering. Replaced the background in PS, then switched to Deep Paint for a painterly effect. Back in PS I added a top white layer with a layer mask and revealed the rose picture using Trimoon's Rust preset. A slight curves adjustment to finish off.

Now... please tell us how you did it.
Simple procedure, actually, and turns out different each time...guess I just got lucky here. The steps are in this tutorial: http://www.retouchpro.com/forums/sho...&threadid=4820

In this particular case the two layers that get blended by removing the mask were something like this:

1) original dupe with KPT pyramid paint filter, then hue/sat to give red rose with green background (filled separately) and
2) original roughed up with a swirled/smeared brushing at medium opacity over the original rose, which also filled in the white areas, color shifted in hue/saturation toward pink rose with blue background. Then painted over it, mostly just the background, with a large multicolored "confetti" brush.

Then I treated the two layers as described in the tutorial. The key to this painting method is that there are two slightly different layers, and you erase part of one by painting white on a black mask to blend them together in a splotchy sort of way to make the "painting" look. There are lots of ways to make the layers differ slightly in tone, color, shapes, grain, etc. so that the results can be pretty much anything you like.

Jim, that's really a wonderful job! You have certainly mastered the art of photo painting.

Lisa, very effective use of filters...good choices. The shadow and the black outline gives it a shadowbox look, as if it were mounted that way in a box frame. Nice idea.

Goldcoin, your work is so unusual and creative, always look forward to opening your posts. The red one with black outlines is especially pleasing...I picture it hanging on a wall over a white leather sofa!

Oh my, all renditions are beautiful. I like them all.

I'm getting addicted to Painter. My attempt here is oil pastel on silk. Silk is not really a good material for pastel but I want to put some texture.

One thing I found out about Painter: Painter compresses jpg aggresively but still gives a detailed picture.

Tony, that is absolutely positively incredibly gorgeous! I could run out of adjectives before I praised this effort enough. Wow. I love the smooooooth silky satin look, and your brush strokes are just perfect. I have downloaded it to my keeper file.

Sadly, I am unable to use my Painter7 because my tablet driver is messed up and hubby has to get me a new one. Yes, I am a computer illiterate when it comes to installing or fixing programs...I just use 'em

Here's an oil painting look done in Photoshop. I attempted to make it look like the background was the rest of the garden out of focus. It's mostly done with scatter filter, clouds filter, black marble pattern adjustment layer, and a brushstroke pattern/texture I made a while back. I used the special pattern twice, normal size in color burn mode, and enlarged size in vivid light mode, both reduced opacity. This pattern can be found at:

First of all congratulations and thankyou for taking on the mini-challenge forum..You have always provided great pics for us to work on.

Also, your watercolor is really exceptional and your last entry is also great..

Tony and Jim, both of your painted entries are really great.

Lisa and David, both very nice..The entries are all so pro looking..

As for me, I have locked myself in the closet and am fighting to get used to my new tablet and am trying to learn enough Painter to get along..I vowed that I would only submit in Painter till I learned enough of it to at least be fair at it.. Here is my try using Painter..

Jerry

P.S. Painter files must be huge..I had to reduce this to 700 pix. at zero quality..Hope it looks like something.

Definitely worth the closet time

Jerry:

Good for you on the Painter and tablet quest.

Down the road I can envision reading your reassuring a newbie, "Back in ot-three, I made that transistion myself. It was a struggle, but I made it. Look what I can do now. Someday, you'll get there, too."

Based on this creation, I'd say you're definitely on the right track.

Keep 'em coming.
