Welcome back Barbara. You really make GIMP sing. I enjoy seeing your work.

Re: Lancaster, PA farm

Thanks to Frank for providing the nice photo.

I re-ruralized (or should I say de-suburbanized), cropped, sharpened, simplified and used the AHB in CS2. Texturized in CS, too, but you can't see it through the compression.

Steve, great photo to artify. And nice work on it too.
Skydog, nice drawing look.
Pavel, good crop... nice job.
Kroll, love the color and book illustration look.
Barbara, superb job with Gimp. I can't get it to do anything like that!
Ant, fantastic rainy day, and great definition in grass etc. And the last one is really stunning, with a bad storm coming on!
DC, good idea to "de-suburbanize" it... I did that too. Great job with AHB.

Painted this in Studio Artist. Click link to view larger image:

Rumor is there will be a Studio Artist for Windows coming out this year.

---------------

On mine I:
* Cropped
* Duplicated the Backround and increased the saturation on the new layer.
* Applied Trimoon's new "James Brown" Impressionist setting to simplify the image. Brush size = 400, Opacity = 100, Pressure 105. See: www.Trimoon.com - downloads
* Saved and closed file, then switched to Painter
* iIn various sizes applied Jeremy Sutton's Big_Wet_Delicious brush (from the CD that accompanies his Painter Creativity book) to smoosh the paint around. Then saved/closed.
* Opened the layered file in Photoshop again.
* Sharpened painted layer.
* Used Hue/Saturation and Selective Color adjustments to mess with colors.
* Duplicated the Background and copied the duplicate to the top of the layer stack.
* Applied Akvis > Sketch followed by Levels to get some nice edge lines. (Photoshop > Blur > Smart Blur > Edge Only followed by Ctrl + I would work, too.) Changed blend mode to Darken and added Layer Mask.
* Painted black on layer mask to suppress or tone down edges.

Whew...

Danny, that's a jawdropper. Great work.

Phyllis, I like the way you cropped yours. Not to mention the way you painted it. Nice to see you hereabouts.
