Spent hours and hours doing brush stroke after brush stroke.



Looked terrible so gave up and used a plugin, then added a canvas texture.
Learned a lot about brush strokes though.

Hi everybody !
this is my try to create an illusion of real watercolor
(used simply tools - blur (selective), edge detection plus a bit of sharpening,
then I painted this onto white layer to simmulate a real watercolor work,
and then added a touch of texture.

and now I will try to attach a thumbnail from gallery

sorry,I dont know how

Napkin Art..

Here is my "sketchy" version". As usual, great variations. Used Photoshop only - my Painter versions seemed too boring(must be the artist) so back to the old PS!

Hey all, I haven't been around in a long time. Moved to a place with no internet. Well actually we had internet but it was sooooo slow I couldn't stand to use it. All is good now though DSL is here!


Don't remember what all I did but I know I used the quadrant flip filter available fromHarry's Filters.


It's good to be back!

Hi, I missed the car contest trying to decide between good reflections and bad reflections so decided to get in early here.
I cropped, then adjusted the colours with a tone curve, added some duplicate layers with low opacity and played with blurs, find edges and a spot focus filter so the men stood out. Then flattened, smudge brushed lots and painted on some light strokes, added the feathered border and smudged a little more.

I went for bold and contrast.

Great picture!

Janet

This picture was done for fun and not for the contest.
