Re: Old Man

Thanks Craig.

Greyscaled image and used angled strokes, and blends. Played with stroke length and width. I have a script which helps to bring out the edges also.

Re: Old Man

Hi all---been looking in on this wonderful thread for quite a while now, it just keeps getting better! Well done everyone.
Patricia sent me some "starry night" brushes for Painter and I've been playing.....had about 6 layers on the go on this one and then decided to turn all of them off to see better what I was doing on the top layer, and came up with this. Well I liked it, hope some of you do.

Re: Old Man

palms1... It's not that I forgot to post image, (although I've doe it before..hehe) it's that when I had a look at the one I did post it was too big to see it all without scrolling up and down, so I re-sized it (twice )
John
Palms1....You must have looked as I was editing the post.....lol

Re: Old Man

Hiya Pat...Like the "starry night" ones, but not too fussed at the "Da-Vinci" type though. One of starries throws up an error in Painter but it seems to work ok. Have you tried enlarging the brushes? it's not long before the laptop tells me "there is not enough memory" and it's got 1 gig ddr2 ram in it.

Re: Old Man

Some one cue Don McLean's song "Vincent(Starry,Starry Night)". That is a very nice rendition Britsdad.
