My Romulan

Okay, so she not really a Romulan, she's a German Shepherd.
Her name is Rommy (short for Andromeda) we just call her the Romulan because she really can be a brat!
I took this last month while we were out camping.

I did her in Painter with watercolor brushes.

Hi Sherry...

Beautiful dog.

After knocking out the BG and using Levels to bring out a little facial detail, I applied the #djrOils24 Impressionist setting and a little Unsharp Mask.

Thanks for letting us play.

When I was growing up, they called these dogs German Police dogs. Anyone remember that? Anyway we had several along the way.

And here is my take on this very nice image. Especially like the way the dog is posed.

oh my this is cool, I'm loving looking at the results!

Danny I really like that painted look, the looseness of the strokes is balanced with the detail beautifully!

Palms, the clarity really adds a lot of interest

Oltenius LOVE what you did with the color!

Fluffbutt the loose wetness of your watercolor is really lovely

Steve, How did you do that? I love the way the strokes work with the image and the contrast of the dark strokes is really interesting.
I occasionally still get asked if my dogs are police dogs, we do a lot with them but no police work!
tat? OH TATTOO! she's chipped too!

A reality touch....

Closer to reality?
I used some of my filters:
Sharpening
White Balance

Beautiful Dog, Beautiful Interpretations.

I did mine with Paint Engine, using various masks and selections.
