palms1...Glad you put on the link, I've never seen that tute,thanks, it's a good one with loads of tips. And I'll have a look for Scott Deardoff's work. As for not having the paitience to "fiddle" I think it could be in my "makeup" or my "pigheadedness" (more to the point) that makes me keep at something, no matter how long it takes,(could be the stuborn Yorkshireman mentallity, ie no pigging inanimate electronic gadgit is going to beat me) untill I do it to my satisfaction, but saying that I don't do this for a living, (thank god) therefore, it's not the be all and end all. However, it does really get me annoyed when I can't get the result I want......John

I looked at this tutorial...being a beginner smudger...and found that it involves many brushes that I don't have, plus it's for Photoshop, which I also do not have.

I did not gain much from it. Can you suggest how one might begin using, as I do, Paint Shop Pro for my basic software and utilize the smudge brush or push brush which come as standard tools?

This would be more what this poor beginner is looking for.

Picked up the brushes from this site. Will play around with them and see if I can come up with anything worthwhile.

Thanks for the tip.

Steve

patriciakay, you've done another great smudge -- and i like what you did with the background also.

thanks for the kind words -- i think i'm gonna go back and practice more with flowers, they are much easier!

I admit that this is my very first smudge painting. I've always been bothered by the seemingly too smooth, too slick feel of smudged paintings and wanted to see if I could smudge and still keep a semblance of reality. This was a great picture to work on and try my experiment. My only problem was that when I finished the dog looked as if it was floating in a sea of green. It looked so funny I had to laugh and go back to the drawing board (errr....mousepad) and try again.

My hat goes off to those of you who accomplished great work on the dog. I found out smudge painting is harder than it looked.
