Simple oil on canvas.

Impressionist, Paint Engine, DCSpecial's 1969, Cybia's Eliminate Black, and a few other layer property settings along with GIMP's Bumpmapping for texture and applied canvas on the Eliminate Black layer.

Side section of a weaved purse.

Used my Impressionist Thread filter for this one. Some Retinex equalization and Blur Subtract sharpening too.

Well, it looks like a very intimate moment for these lovely birds. I wanted a secluded place for them to preen. More manipulation than artsy work here just softened the saturation, re colorized the water at their feet, cloned the reeds on the right over to the left to cover up the murky water, left a bit of "civilization" show in the upper left and set a soft spotlight effect on the ladies and then ran a lighting effect on the same general lit area.

Thank you Patricia Kay! It was a fun picture to work on. :-)

About cameras... I have a pretty good Canon PowerShot Pro and I turst its auto functions for the most part. I never understood F stops, apertures, etc. Most of the time I get the shot then rely on PhotoShop to correct my mistakes.

From time to time I do have to be on my best behavior when a client asks me to take a photo that they will incorporate into an ad. Not a thing in the world I can do when an office staff group shot (6 of them) all come out with the same person with eyes shut!! Arrrgh..

Thanks for your reply Swampy....i also have a canon but the A300...since i have got totally into the digital art thing, i want to buy a camera with a good lense...i intend to read up and pick brains before i decide...Peter has a Sigma film camera...seldom used..so i will play with that too although i love digital..its so instant...

Kind regards Patricia Kay..
