Palms just love it, such impetus, for me we are approaching autumn and wondering where our summer went

palms,

thanks patricia

actually, i dont like it that much now that it's posted (mine, not the originals). i had something in mind and it just doesnt look right now to me. the idea was to put 'lights' in some of the flowers. i think the frame is too large also. hehe, that's the trouble with being a critic and an artist. you always tear down your own work the most

Thanks for the play Palms.

My usually workflow except I used Plastic Wrap instead of Chrome. Otherwise, Impressionist (djrOil24 preset; also used Thread2 preset with lowered Opacity and changed Orientation angle to fixed to create the canvas), GIMP Bumpmapping and some saturation enhancements. afterwards, where I wanted just oil and not canvas, I selectively erased the canvas texture.

Nice photo palms. I think winter passed us by in the Los Angeles area. It was 84 degrees today.

I buzzed the photo, and then masked out the background. I added a color background, played with the blending modes, and added a watercolor texture.
