I went out to shoot some fall colors yesterday. Have fun.

Please don't post these elsewhere, thanks.

Re: Fall Colors

Alan,
Thank you for sharing your photos.
I was in Grand Tetone few years ago. I hope I can return some time...

Oil on canvas.

Bumped the saturation, used Danny's djroil24 with reduced brush size, then applied my variable thickness technique and canvas technique to finish it off. Here's the full rendering; attached is a crop (same quality level).

One on the rocks.

No work today, so I thought I would have one on the rocks.

Re: Fall Colors

Alan, great shots! Thanks for the play

I pulled up Painter! But I think I found a technique I can work with. Since most of my lame attempts in Painter turn out to be nothing but a smeary mess, I said, "What the heck. Smear it up big time!". So I used the Oily blender brush and just smooshed color around. Saved the Painter file as a PSD and brought that into Photoshop.

I then placed a copy of the original photo on top of the smeary Painter layer and desaturated the copy. I played with the Blending options, Blend mode and HSL adjustment until I got something I liked that brought a little of the original's detail back into the smeared colors.

Added frames and some canvas texture to the painting.
