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.

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

Re: Old Man

This thread is over a year old now; and every time I travel down the road Mr. Plumlee lives on, I look to see if he is still watching over his cows. Another year older, and he is thin as a rail. I sometimes take him a plate of this or that but often wonder if he remembers to eat it. His memory and personality are failing, yet twice a day I can find him in the pasture with his four-legged friends. I'll know when his time has come when the cows are no longer tended and the hay on the side of the road isn't getting used.

Here is a chalked portrait of him carrying hay.

I tried my Filter Forge plugin (Cartoonizer) on this one, and it seemed to work nicely. This is also my first post on this forum section.

Just a note to everyone --

I haven't worked on this yet, but I wanted to congratulate all of you who have done so. The story of the man is very heartwarming and all of your work is too.

Re: Old Man - Braggin' Rights

Thanks to all the wonderful RTP people here. Without your inspiration, I would not be able to toot my own horn.

Not to brag...uh hum....yeah right!

After processing this picture I recently took Grand Champion at the district fair held in our area. Chester would be proud.

Re: Old Man

I've been asking around town for the last several months as to the whereabouts of the kind, gentle man who is the subject of the two threads in this art forum. No one seems to know what has happened to him. Someone did come onto his property and bushhog it; and there have been no cows for a long time. I have a feeling this dear soul has left this frail existence. Thank you all for the wonderful pictures of him and for letting me share some of his unique lifestyle with the world.

Janet

Re: Old Man

Sorry to hear about that Janet. I do remember the gent many years ago. Hope you don't mind a chiseled ice sculpture. Some icicles unfortunately formed for the melting/re-freezing process.

Re: Old Man

Lyle your chiseled ice sculpture makes a fitting memorial for this kind, gentle man. He passed away on 18 January 2011. He will be missed.

Re: Old Man

Janet Petty,

You should feel lucky you crossed paths with such elder folk.
It's a good feeling spending time listening to the past.
City life is moving to fast to have memories IMHO.

One for the album.

Re: Old Man

George, very nice Tim Shelbourne effect. Very gentle art.

Lyle, cool mesh.

TopiToo, I like what you have done to emphasize the face and features of this dear, old soul.

Alcar, Impressionist certainly came through on this one. Thumbs up.

Rembrant, interesting spelling of your moniker. In reference to another Rembrandt we all know of and love? Your water color and pencil sketches are superb. The pencil is amazing in its detail. You could do a tutorial on this and everyone would be copying your style.

Joeven, I really like the impressionistic feel of the rendition. Great job.

Janet

P.S. Lqqker, didn't you have one posted here? Did I miss it?
