thank you, patricia. another lovely pic

i decided to do some actual painting on this one. no filters. this was done mostly with the 'push' brush (heavy smudge brush to ps users) on a separate layer then some duplicate layers and blend modes.

Patricia... Nice pic. Thanks for sharing.

Dan... I especially like how you brought out the color in the leaves.

Mine:
* AKVIS sketch plugin (for the edges)
* Levels to define the edges and texture
* Impressionist > Charcoal > Default for the colors, Normal (55% opacity)
