Re: Creative Interpretations - Bath House

Did this one in Photoshop using the Pattern Stamp Tool.

I saved two patterns for the PST, one of the original color corrected version with all the detail and another pattern where I had run Artistic>Underpainting.

Using an impressionist brush with the PST set to impressionist, I did a quick overall color layer. Above that I did a new layer with the impressionist optioin of the PST turned off. This added back subtile detail above the general color layer. Then, with the same impressionist style brush at about 50% opacity, I used the detail pattern to paint back in finer detail in selected areas (like windows, palms, architectural features etc. Did some selective smudging on this layer where the details were too "real"

Merged, duplicated and did an edges mask and sharpened the duplicate and set the opacity to 50%

Cool technique Swampy

Using psp9 - cropped, corrected color, buzzed then using a script (Paint Shop Pro version of an action) created Warhol pic.

Starting the same way but finishing with Paint Engine used a couple effects to create a Neiman-esqe pic

Re: Creative Interpretations - Bath House

Thought I would try a watercolor (may be a little thick in a few places) for this one.

Re: Creative Interpretations - Bath House

IK... I love the result you got on the building, but find the chunky black "pixel" look on the foreground shrubs and palms distracting. Do you know which tweaks caused that?

Re: Creative Interpretations - Bath House

Should have cleaned up the Caravaggio (Xero) more around that area Dee Dee.
