First one in a long time. I first used PSP and ran noise filter, then enhance edges. Then I did a VP triangles set at all subtle, then Impressionist. Finally I removed some more noise.

The second one is a sort of watercolor effect using PSP and xero lineart drawing with no outlining.

patricia, what a beautiful flower.

after many color adjustments and a couple of filters, i attempted my first "smudge" piece -- i can see where this can be a very addictive process -- i had to stop myself .

thanks for the beautiful image to work on.

Brought out the subject a little...punched up the color a little...softened it a little. Then I added a dumb little dull black frame.

Had to have a go at this one. Lovely flowers.

Took the original into Adobe Illustrator CS2 and did a live trace and posterized down to 13 colors. Brought the result back into Photoshop and rasterized the vector (Smart Object). Did just a touch of smudge on some of the petals to reduce glaring posterization areas. New background, frame and signature.
