Thanks to Alex for sharing this lovely picture of Catarina with us. What a sweetheart! I just love that red hair!

Here I used KPT6 equalizer to sharpen the details, like the eyes and hair (compare with original to see a big difference...with KPT filter you can see individual hairs!) while giving the skin a soft focus look.

I wouldn't call this "art" though...more like an enhanced portrait.

Very pretty picture to work with! Wonderful smile and eyes.

Used Art History Brush with Dry Media Brush 5. Added layer on top of original and added texture brought opacity down.

What a pretty model to work with..I'm hooked on working on these portraits..

Phyllis..Very nice filter work..The combination of sparkle and soft skin texture is really appealling..

Jill..nice texture and frame application..I like it..

I started with Phyllis's smudge painting technique.. And applied one of Bud's oval frame treatments..Then played with the frame layers to adjust the colors accordingly..

JERRY - I can't bring myself to even START anything with this picture after seeing your version. It's just PERFECT.

Phyllis - a beautiful pic to begin with - thanks for sharing. I like your 'enhanced' look.
Jill - good job on the texture and frame.
Jerry - yes, a tough act to follow on this one....very nice and I like the matte/frame
Herman and Amanda - nice painterly looks
Here's my rendition....sepia tone....painted some of the detail/color back in the eyes/lips....blur

Jill, Jerry, Amanda, all nice paintings...all different styles, but all lovely.

Bill C, I just love the simplicity and softness you achieved! By the way, this pic was from Alex, so he deserves your thanks. Psst...you really have to start reading the blurbs that accompany the mini challenge originals.

Ken, the party colors and the twinkle in her eye express the personality she shows even more...very imaginative and effective.

Phyllis
