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.

Fantastic everyone. I love viewing all the different interpretations, and they're ALL beautiful

I was thinking of Valentine's Day when I did mine, a little early I suppose. I copied, pasted the rose into a background I already had on file. I then erased the black bk/ground from the rose. I applied Filter, Artistic, cutout and faded, to the rose and new background separately. I then added a little noise to the rose layer. Flattened. Opened in PhotoImpact, framed it and added text. Opened in PS 7 and painted out a lot of the frame so only the oval part of the frame was left. I had a lot of fun as usual. Thanks everyone for sharing your wonderful talent

Jerry, LOL, you're too funny

Chuck, that is really pretty, looks like you're coming along quite nicely with Painter Classic The "gallery demons", boy you're not kidding either. I thought my computer went completely haywire. It sounds awfully technical to me Great work. Don't delte your images in the Gallery, wait and see, ok?

Al, lovely delicate "tissue paper" look, and the background works well with it. Very nice rendition.

hanks_rose

Would a rose by any other name smell as sweet? If we can apply that to sight instead of smell the answer is yes! They all are GREAT. Just put the rose thru the colored pen effect in PhotoImpact with a setting of 55. I thought about removing the crystalline edges but they made me think of an emerging butterfly and its cocoon.

Always a pleasure to see your work. You sure make PSP do some amazing things.

Hello again. You're 2-for-2. This is an exceptional interpretation. Glad you decided to leave the crystalline edges. Definitely adds to the effect. Well done.
