DWDraw very nice but as you said it is small and you can not see the detail. I for one would like to see it larger.

Thanks for your interest. I re-sized it to a larger size.

Trimon, yes its a great water color.

Thermanda, awsome job with the hands.

Bill M nice pencil sketch

I tried this on my own and failed so I used an action, adds an old framing effect to it.

Don--thanks for digging this one up. The rich earth tones are wonderful.

I do believe I've found something that is pretty consistant for portraits. This is the same set of steps on used on the Kelly challenge. I did lighten the image before I started.

Each number represents a layer starting from the bottom and working my way up. I make a duplicate layer from the background for each. I did change the default brush on one or two of these--it was the one where the brush looks like an outline

1. Watercolor--damp translucent
2. Watercolor--spotty brush on rough paper (luminosity 67%)
3. watercolor--soft daubs on fine paper (soft light 47%)
4. pencil sketch --detailed color (screen 40%)
5. paint--smudges on soft paper (soft light 58%)
6. paint--fine brush hairs (darken 65%) remove emboss effect before applying
7. stylize--find edges (soft light 37%)
8. gaussian blur soft sketch (soft light 52%)
9. pattern fill layer in soft light at 75% to add a light texture.

Cheryl,

I can see why Danny called you the "Impressionist Queen." Nice rendition.

The first thing I thought of when I saw this photo was old photo. So here is an old photo. This one was done in PS7. First I boosted the brightness and contrast and then ran the Ancient Photo action.

And here is one obtained using PSP8. First, I cropped the photo a little tighter and then ran the one step photo correction. Then ran the Old Photo Album script (set for 100 years).

Girl on a Phone

Here's my take. I embossed the image to sharpen it and then coverted to duotone. It took me longer to do the frame than anything else.

I wanted to practice using the Sargent brushes in Painter, and I thought this image would be a good one for a painting.

You were right, a good image for a good painting don't, think you need to much practice though
