Patricia, thanks! Your creation is wonderful...

Britsdad, my water color attempt has a classical method... Copy three times the background. Desaturate first copy, increase the light, apply poster edges and set blending mode to overlay. On the second copy set blending mode to multiply and adjust opacity to 60-80%, for the top layer set blending mode to screen, set the interior opacity (fill) to 90-95%. Play on every layer with color balance and selective color, hue and saturation. Finally apply the texture. I hope is helpful for you...
Regards,
Dan

Love the brooding moody pic Gary... wish I could get some of that sodding wet stuff (um, rain I think they call it) over my way. Britsdad, where did you find that action?

Well i thought you were mad trying to smudge this picture too much detail and so i thought i would have a go at it, and yes i can confirm you are barking mad to try it (although you havent done to bad)
first of all ran the action effie basic (download from here http://homepages.slingshot.co.nz/~mikefinn/action.html it is free but i use it sometimes when i am in a hurry before i smudge it speeds things up and you can see where to smudge (the squiggly lines ) ) then i started to smudge then gave up added a find edge layer and overlayed and reduced opacity

Palms

ps Craig i am going to have to have lessons of you for cleaning up are you as good with housework ?????

Love all the versions you lot have come up with, and yes palms you were right. (bad idea..lol).....
Littlecoo: Try this site for the action, it's about half way down the page http://www.kolbotn-fk.com/artikkel05.htm There's lots of stuff there, and Danny had a hand in the sketch action as well......John.
