Aha!! So that's why mine came out different.

Here's another shot, now with Janet's Trillium.
Ended up throwing a load of stuff at it so I added a palette shot.

Once again thanks, Steve and Janet.

It really pops Ro. I like what you did with it.

If it hadn't rained for the last three days, I would be out there on that dirt road trying to take pictures of a trillium that has opened all the way. They are SO gorgeous.

Here's one attempt at Trimoon's art history technique. I don't know if it's too close to a photo or not. My wife doesn't like it as well as the photo. Any comments would be appreciated.

Used the art history spatter 15a
Used the tutorial's texture121
First extra layer set to hard light just as in the tutorial
Added a second extra layer set to soft light; seemed to brighten and give some depth.

Ron... meant to comment on your pic the other night, then I got distracted, and you know the rest. Anyway...

If it makes you feel any better, I get that reaction more times than not!

It does look pretty close to the photo 'cept for the more saturated colors. That's not necessarily bad. Most people have the problem that AHB obliterates their images far beyond recognition.

I've found the Art History Brush to be a wild and wooly tool, even with Trimoon's guidance. It kind of reminds me of a knuckleball thrown by a baseball pitcher: Very unpredictable outcome despite consistent thowing mechanics. There are times when I really like the results AHB renders and other times when I ask, "Why do I keep trying? It's hopeless."

All I can tell you is keep experimenting with different images, presets, brushes, sizes, settings, doing the multiple layers/different blend modes/varying layer opacities thing, etc. You might also try some over sharpening of some layers and applying Levels and/or Hue/Sat adjustments (on individual layers using the Layer > Group with previous command) to jazz up color and contrast.

As time goes on you'll get more comfortable since you'll be able to better predict (sort of) what you're going to get. Down the road if you ever get Corel Painter, you'll find that having learned the ins/out of AHB will put you on the fast track to understanding Painter's very popular (and much better behaved) cloning feature.

While poking around David Nagel's site, discovered the Direction and Fade options for brushes. These dynamics help tame the Art History brushes. I posted a set here that you may like to try out.
