Catherine...

This is just exceptional. Which brushes did you use on this one?

I agree, love the colours, did you add surface texture? Texture is excellent.

Thank you, Danny! I value your encouragement very much. I've been trying to teach myself this impasto effect by trial and error, and I'll tell you some things that seem to be working, though I'm probably not telling you anything you didn't already know.
I like to make custom palettes in Painter IX of brushes that work together for an effect, and one of my palettes is Impasto Effects I've also learned that many of the brushes, even the ones that don't have "grainy" in their titles, can give an impasto effect if I open the Impasto controls and change the Draw to selection from Color to Color and Depth.

For the lady in the green dress, I used Captured Bristle brush on the whole thing, with some Just Add Water to smooth some places and Jeremy's Mish Mash to stir them up. First of all, I had smoothed out her skin with light cloning in PS and tweaked the colors. I think in that one, I also began with Art History, my favorite tool of all.

For the lantern pic, I was wanting to play with some serious depth, and I had already cranked the colors way up in PS and had added a little glow to the lanterns using Render/Lighting Effects. I brushed over the whole picture with Impasto Wet Bristle and Captured Bristle, going back over the places where I wanted to build up more depth.

Neve, I appreciate your saying the texture works. I've been working on that one, too. After the painting was about as complete as I could get it, I applied cotton canvas surface texture and using the Grain Emboss brush I lightly brushed over a some of the canvas.

Kisa, thanks, pal.

Isn't it interesting how we've all gotten interested in Painter about the same time? I wonder what the next big thing in digital art will be? You, Neve, have wonderful things posted at POF, and I was just browsing through some of your galleries, Danny. You do EVERYTHING fearlessly! I love it all. And Kiska, you know I love your work. My favorites right now are with Studio Artist, and I'm eternally jealous that it's for Macs only.

Wow, Catherine...that's exactly what I said when I looked at these..."WOW!" The laterns picture has to be one of the finest examples of photo-art I've seen. I'm in awe
