Very nice first one Palms Jury's still out on the second though.
Maybe you could give us some tips on using AHB,I don't seem to get anywhere with it myself' though I can be impatient at times.

Yep we got the snow, All the kids got the day off ( shut all the schools in Birmingham) and the airport shut for a while. It is great hearing kids having good clean fun out in the snow.

AHB tips for you i have explained a couple of times in threads how i do it ( cant remember which threads though if i find them i will put a link later )
basically i have the layers
background layer, fill layer ( any colour that takes your fancy) then large brush layer , medium brush layer , and lastly detail brush layer

My most used brush is Trimoons art history brush spatter 15a here is a link ( with a texture but i havent used the texture yet ! ! )

http://www.retouchpro.com/forums/pho...imoons+brushes

Also i turn the background off so i cant see what i am painting weird maybe but fun, Do you remember Rolf Harris and his "can you tell what it is yet " style of painting, well that is sort of what i do ( NO i do not copy the sounds he makes )

will add some pics in a while for a bit of a visual look at ! Added picture hope it helps someone, but was done roughly (about 5 mins)

Palms

P.S. impatience isnt always a bad thing Peter

Thanks for the info.

I am checking out the thread, downloading the brushes, you make it sound too easy.

On a lighter note, the schools here closed, I was trapped at home (terrible )
made a snowman, the kids decapitated it, had a great time in a snowball fight, watched a dvd,. Now i'm tired.

Re: Another Barn Photo

Well Palms tried it out, like it will do again certainly, still don't grasp exactly whats happening, but I suppose I don't have to.

thanks again for the head start.

Showing you age there. You really need a Didgeridoo, to make the noises properly, though it may interfere with using the mouse and the neighbours might not like all the kangeroos hanging about either.

Precisely get used to it, then start trying to understand and taking it further, trying different brushes, using layer blend modes etc but do still have fun
