Wild Grapes

Near my home the wild grape vines are hanging full. The grape leaves have withered, and the grapes appear to be growing on an oak. I thought this might make a good fall painting.

Still on my Impasto binge.

Experimenting with GIMPressionist again and, with a few edge detect blendings, and some other enhancement filters (AAA Fotofix and Color Blur filters) and things got the result as seen. Click here for the complete rendering (don't forget to expand).

Re: Wild Grapes

Photomaster, those look good enough to eat. Great interpretation.

Re: Wild Grapes

I saved all your pictures. They are all wonderful.

Palms-yours has a classic look to it that I tried but just couldn't achieve.

Swampy-I hate to be stupid, but how can I learn more about texture maps?

Lkroll-your pictures are always so different. The colors are so intense.

Photomaster-I love the soft look and how you cropped to focus on the grapes.

Janet, you're right the grapes look good enough to eat. I'll have to say I never tried wild grapes. Don't know if they're sweet or not.

Swampy,
I've tried to follow that link several times and it takes me to your homepage but when I click on the link for photoshop tutorials, it takes me to the following page http://home.earthlink.net/~lpswampy/...ods/index.html and I can find no reference to the tutorials. What am I doing wrong?
Shari

Re: Wild Grapes

Shari, are you getting to this page? The whole right side of the screen contains a list of my tutorials. Texture mapping is highlighted in the screen shot below.
