Beautiful roses. Really nice work going on here. Craig and Steve I like what you did to your roses.

I used Painter and the Sargent cloner brush for the painted effect. In PS I added texture and a little bit more smudging. I add a layer above the image and fill it with 50% grey and set it to overlay. This is the layer that I smudge until it looks like part of the under painting.

One more. I just gave the same image a vintage look with a sepia tint.

Patricia, if you use Project Dogwaffle then you may have Gertrudis. Am trying out some free-hand brush work with it. The second (and last) image I sent was done that way. Not as good as real smudging I suppose, but it gets me in the ballpark. And maybe with a few more attempts and some more digging I may get closer. Who Knows?

Also am glad Craig posted re. smudging in PSP. That sounds like a very good technique. Will give it a shot, but I don't expect to post anything for a good long time.

Been trying to find a tute for PSP9 for smudging...no luck yet but will keep my eyes open...My favorite program to smudge in is Project Dogwaffle then i like Twisted brush, I can smudge okay in photoshop too but I find it quite hard in PSP9 so you must be good if you are doing it in there.....

Craig...Lovely...like everything about it and the lighting is just right too...

Hello Steve...

I dont have Gertrudis but did have a trial run with it and thought it good...but havent bought it yet...I think you are the first person that i have come across that also uses project Dogwaffle...I really like it and am only using the free version at the moment but will upgrade as soon as i have the pennies...

Kind of Craig to post the info and its just to practice...I am sure you will get there...

So I will look forward to your first smudge painting....

Patricia....

Sorry didn't mean to mis-lead you. I bought the stand-alone version of Gertrudis Pro. Never tried Dog Waffle.

As for the smudge painting that may take some time.
