Oh yeah advertising would be good.

What about a digital Christmas Tree? now you can have 5-minute ornaments lol.

And it sure makes a blurry photo look pretty - that is practical - saving otherwise hopeless pictures? lol

Congratulations Aylaah on your first painting! I look forward to seeing more of your work. Thanks for the exceptionally colorful image to work with.

Palms... Yours is facinating. Some detail, please...

- - - - - - -

Inspired by Palms, on the first one I used Virtual Painter's Rectangle, Photoshop's Smart Blur (Edges only) applied twice to individual duplicates of the VP layer at different settings (one layer white lines [blend mode screen], the other [inverted]) to get black lines [blend mode darken]).

The second is based on the first with an application some texture (Texturizer > Sandstone) and embossing (merge all layers onto a new layer, Stylize > Emboss, set blend mode to Overlay).

try and explain !

Danny as i said in a earlier post i used the ahb in different sizes ( normally i do this on three different layers but not this time ! )
I used a brush that was part of a set i downloaded called touchstoneset3 best way to describe it is it looks like a corner ( named scary1) then dabbed the colour as opposed to brushing,
when finished sharpened using usm a bit on the heavy side
Next i done a pattern layer Gauze reducing opacity till got the effect i wanted probably about 20%

hope this has made some sense

Palms

i have found this link to touchstone brushes ( not sure if this is where i got the set from but set 3 is there under smudges )

Thank you

Its a bit scary posting my first thing on here, and with it being my own photo, even more so! The results you've all come up with have been very inspiring and the support for my photograph is very much appreciated, thank you all!

Thanks, Craig. The great colors made it a fun one to play with.

Palms: Missed your original comment about using the Art History Brush.

Thanks for the link to the brushes. WOW -- what a collection from which to choose!

Thats ok Danny because i realised afterwards that i hadn't commented on your paintings, which again were impresive, i liked the blocked look it worked very well with the colours, which i think were the main inspiration beautiful colours. The brushes are good fun some work well some dont but it's fun finding out.
And i really enjoyed doing something different ( dont know if it has a name the style) and it has given me a bit of confidence to do different things
