Creative interpretations: Marble Flowers

I've had this photo on my hard drive for ages and always felt it could be painted, manipulated or otherwise changed in some challenging ways. Have fun with this.

I went wild!!

1. Created a pencil sketch.
2. Put a bright colored tile pattern under and reset blending mode and blending optins.

I just had another go using PSCS's replace color tool set to Color mode. Added some texture too. Colorizing in primary colors is very easy with this new tool.

I'm running off to work on this right now. They're beautiful in the original, wonder where they come from?

This was fun! I first used the Auto photo fix in PSPX then hand tinted with green & cream in Painter IX using tinting brush at 2% opacity, then just fiddled with smoothing edges (a fav application of mine), adjusting hues, etc.

Finished it in watercolor.

Neasa, very pretty and very subtile. I never would have thought of green and cream, but it is effective.

Thought I'd have a play too. A rough colour, a water colour, a pencil sketch and a screen with reduced opacity

Slightly abstract

I used a displacement filter, Find edges and various blending modes.

Cassidy: I like the color selections!

Kiska: Lovely! Your edge effect really sets off the center roses and leaves.

Phil: Wow, The what did you use for the displacement? That's really wild, but I like it.

Displacement Map

Well I am fiddling with the distort/displace filter trying to learn how it works. In this case, I forgot what I did. At any rate I took the original photo "marble flowers" and then ran a threshold on both the Red and Green layers. I blurred the picture with Gaussian blur and saved the file as a photoshop file and used it for the displacement map. I then ran the displacement filter on the original file using the map. The results are something like the enclosed.

Since I am retired I do this sort of thing when I get tired of the rocking chair. Ha.
