Yea I bet you were all thinking, heather, heath, hills and kilts weren't you? This is a pic my brother took last year, I thought it would serve well as an "artyfying" piece, and he doesn't mind.....John

Here's an action I found called Sharons coloured sketch, then some edits of my own, ok it's cheating a little, but the way it's done lets you add your own touches. And I like it..... I think I might try a light smudge next.....John
Oh, and palms1, what's ahb? (pardon my ignorance)

Ah-har, in that case I do like the look of your ahb pickie.. I'll have to have a good look at that, I've had a run thru' a tute for it, but to a beginner like me, it did seem complex.....Anyway I'm too much engrossed with this smudging lark at the mo...nice one .....John

For those wanting a scenic picture of Scotland, this is one I took a couple of weeks ago when I was on holiday (it always rains when I take my holidays).

Have fun.

Nice Patricia......Thanks for the kind words(you're becoming my guardien angel) I'm doing a smudge now but I'm having trouble with the path (trying to do it all with Sarah's hairbrush) it either looks too much or not enough. (damn thing)..maybe leave it tonight and have another go tomorrow. ....John
