Thanks for sharing the pix, John...

Please share some info/detail on how you crafted your interpretation. The brush work is especially impressive.

Littlecoo:----Yea, yea, I know you live in Oz, but you don't have a monopoly on hot weather. Here now in the "north of England" the temp today is 32 c, and "sticky", that's the coolest it's been for 3 weeks and I, for one, don't care for it too much. (what we need now is a storm to clear the air) Where abouts do you live in Oz? We almost emigrated to Wadonga 7 years ago with my job, and my sis lives in N.Z. (don't ask where, I can't pronounce it, let alone spell it...lol)
Danny:--Thanks for the comments, I just created a new layer and filled it with white, then changed the blend to overlay which showed the original through, then blocked in the image with Trimoons water colour ahb spatter 15a set at 30-40 pixels,then deleated the original and used the same brush at a smaller size and Trimoons detail brush, both on tight medium settings down to 1 pixel for the small details. (god it took for ever..lol) Then levels and curves layers to lighten. Glad you like it.......John

Used to be a great knit shop...sweaters...scarves..tartans, etc., just around the corner from the British Museum. Wonder if it's still there.

Steve: I can't say as we saw a knitware shop, but that doesn't mean it's not there, but we did see the umbrella shop, WOW! pretty brollies with enormously pretty prices!...
I like your statue, is that a smudge?
I thought I'd try another water colour.....John

The statue was done in a new program not yet released to the public. About all I can tell you at the moment. Helping with beta testing and don't know when the release date will be.

Thanks

Steve
