Neve Impressionist Ladies

Thanks Ro, I remember these two ladies from ages ago. Wonderful results everyone and thanks for the nudge Janet to try the Impressionist Brush in Painter.

elleth,

you lost the bumps; good but in the process you lost some of the 'canvas' texture. not sure what the happy medium is there. i liked that canvas look. could you take that one and just mild opacity clone it down a bit on the bumps?

nice, neve

K.

Bless you Neve! Your creation looks very lovely, indeed.
I see some fabulous work here. Ro, your image is a big hit, and no wonder. Thank you for it.
I had FUN doing this one. Started out in Painter 8, with changes in value and saturation, then cloned with a custom brush for a loose painted effect, changed backgr by hand, finally some additional color changes in ps7 using selective color adjustments.

FABULOUS Judy! I've got no sense of balance at all when it comes to trying to do something like this...you've got a natural talent!

Ping Craig

Tried a few more cracks as you suggested. The Impasto still doesn't show as much as I would like, but this is as close as I have been able to come to the old cracked impasto rendering.

Inspired by Ro's inspiration, here's my attempt at pointillism ala Elements 2:
- Resize picture to 800 pixels wide
- Ensure white is the background color & black the foreground color.
- Layers: (bottom to top)
A: BG.
Copy BG. Pointilize 3. Zoom way in. With magic wand set to 15%, click on a white area created by the pointillize filter. Save this selection & delete the layer.
B: Copy A. Underpainting (all settings basically zero).
C: Copy B. load selection. switch fore & backgnd color. Pointillize (3). Posterize 3. [opacity to 33%]
D: cp B. load selection. switch fore & backgnd color. Pointillize (3). Posterize 2. [opacity to 33%]
E: New layer. Fill with "towel" pattern. Invert. [Softlight, 23%]
F: Copy A. [Pinlight 40%]
G: Copy A. Highpass 3. [Overlay 100%]
H: Hue/Sat adjustment layer to tweak the color

Now resize back to 1115 pixels wide.

This is very sensitive to the size of the image you're working with. Without sizing down before processing, you get much finer "dots". Some might prefer this. I haven't been very impressed by the Pixelate:Pointillize filter, but I think the tricks used here help make it a useful tool.

Judy...

Ditto what Ro said. Simply exceptional.

After prepping the image in Photoshop (isolated the ladies onto a separate layer, replaced background, simplified a bit with Photoshop Dry Brush filter), I switched over to Painter IX.

Cloned using Artists > Sargent, Artists > Captured Bristle and Jeremy's Fave 2 > Scotts_Sargent** brushes. Blended with Just Add Water and Grainy Blender. Applied Surface Effects to the background.

Back to Photoshop for some fine tuning: Cloning to fix a couple areas I missed in Painter, sharpened a bit, used Hue/Sat, Selective Color and Color Balance adjustment layers to mess with the colors.
