steve,

i took another shot at it. this is only sort of what i wanted, but another look at it. my 'impasto' tends to go outside the lines too much, but does give some depth. the cracking would also tend to follow the hue and depth lines; mine doesnt. dont know how to do it, i'm afraid.

Mark, that's beautiful!
Gave you a lot of work - but it was well worth it.

(I thought my Art-History Pointillize brush was a bit complicated - but you beat me there)

danny,

i have to kind of chuckle here a bit. this wasnt the look i was going for, but thanks it was a 'best attempt' at achieving a look i had remembered seeing in an actual painting a long time ago. the painting was one of those where the paint itself is very thick, but age and no care has cracked it. think of the side of an old clapboard house with 20 coats of paint that hasnt been painted in 20 years and you'd have roughly what i'm looking for.

this particular attempt involved several layers, each with a different application of 'brushstrokes' in psp and another of 'fine leather' for the cracking. some other things were tried, but i think those were the things i ended up using. i also had to double the file size after doing this so that you could see the effect up close.

Re. Cracks etc

Craig, the problem for me is when I apply the cracks after the impasto, the impasto tends to be dimished. I tried re-doing the impasto on another layer over the cracks, but still not enough of it shows through.

Also you are right that the cracks would tend to follow the thick lines of the impasto paint application. That may have to be painted in to look exactly like what you are trying to achieve.

steve,

yup, i had the same problem. i ended up with 3 different layers of brushstrokes/impasto and the one layer of fine leather for the cracking. even with rearranging the order of the layers and changing opacities, it was still quite difficult to get the desired result. and one additional problem i had, which could prolly be cured with masking, is that i wanted the strokes to be inside each object within the overal image. like, give a fairly smooth edge to the outline of each woman, but have the full impasto effect within and on each woman's face.

and yes, you may be correct; it may have to be done by hand painting. i'll play around some more with it. maybe some edge enhance or erode or some of those edge finding tools would help.

thanks for the effort, steve. you came REAL close and gave me some ideas and inspiration. and thinking on all this as i write this post, it may be possible to simply make a custom texture myself and apply it to that image. hmmmm.....

Craig

Too many fabulous paintings to name them all, but since I'm posting right beneath Judi, I'll say LOVE YOUR COLORS!
And here's mine, started off w/ Art History Brushes, then to Painter IX where I mainly used the Funky Chunky brush, then back to PS for Trimoon's canvas texture.

I've seen this mentioned before - and it always ends up as a beautiful rendition. What sort of Art History Brush do you use?
