Re: Another interesting face

Nice capture Peter. It's been a while since I've done a compelling oil rendering (been on a watercolor binge). Thought I would take my Impressionist back out (Danny on DPR's site mentioned it and figure it's been a while since I used it) and blended it in with my original water to get the oil. Added the canvas at the end blended it in based on color (lighter gets through this time making the darker get more of the canvas; Cybia's Alphaworks filter for this). Here's the complete Hirez version; attached is a lower quality crop.
