Creative Flair ~ Please help make this special.

Please give this your all, this is a couple that on the 30th July have been married 56 years, they are still so very much in love, to see these two together would make you cry and also smile with happiness, they are such a wonderful couple.

I'd like all the painter experts out there to help me create a painted look picture that i can print off and send to USA to give her a surprise for their wedding anniversary.

Now i will be asking you how you did the "said" picture as i want to learn how to do a painted look picture.

Please make it special.

If you can remove the glasses from the table.

Please also use this picture for personal galleries only, thank you.

Elle

Hi there, Elle,

Hope you like this one.
Can't explain now - gotta work tomorrow, and it's way past bedtime.

Lovely results Elle and Ro, well done. Just a pity this wasn't better quality!
I did some adjustments in PSP first. In Painter, I used Jaykita's WC-A setting(Impressionist Plugin). Acrylics/Captured Bristle on the Background. Blenders/Soft Blender Stump at 12% over most of the image. Really just experimenting with this. Took it back into PSP and did some smudging. Hue/Sat Tool on the ladies lovely blue eyes also the gentleman's but his eyes are not very clear.

Hi Guys - here I am sneaking into the photo art forums! I'm not going to make any attempt myself - way out of my comfort zone - but I do think the picture would be improved a lot if you could open up the man's eye's a bit.

Caitlin its common decency to ask Neve first before changing her picture, its a "said" agreement between the artists all over the net, i have to also say you opened his eyes but then you changed the look of him, he doesn't have wide open eyes, anyhow please ask before you change a picture, would you like it if i changed yours?

Thanks Steve that is a lovely picture.

Hey, Elle, You did ask to create a painted look picture. Here's mine, not sure if you like it though. Maybe u could get it printed on watercolor paper.
I did this in painter 8 with a digital wc brush, though i couldnt tell u which one since i'm forever changing their settings.
Wish the happy couple on my behalf!
