Well I think I'm stealing someones ideas there but I had to do it.



Thanks again Steve, I like what you've done with the water with these, very nice.

Definitely your work on the image, Peter.

Thanks.

Re: Creative Interpretations - Lakeside Estate

I find it so hard to try to write down what I do with an image. I make dozens of little adjustments that I simply can't innumerate. I used the art history brush, the history brush, paint daubs, and some PaintshopPro "Actions" that I created some time ago that contain dozens of steps. I used layers, of course. Without layers, I don't think I could do much. This one was fun.

Swampy, can you tell me more about that? I read somewhere on this site where someone mentioned a tool named "impressionist," and I'm wondering if that is the same thing. I can't find the place it was mentioned, but it had a link where we could download it. Thanks

Re: Creative Interpretations - Lakeside Estate

Alice, there is a plug in called "Impressionist" (PC only, no Mac) that a lot of people use. You can find out more about it by contacting Danny Raphael. Just find any one of his posts on in the RTP and he has a link for more information.

The impressionist that I referr to is found in the options bar of Photoshop when you are using the Pattern Stamp Tool and is not a plugin or add on.

Re: Creative Interpretations - Lakeside Estate

So many beautiful interpretations ! I have been looking closely at each one and trying to figure out how you did it -- a pretty steep learning curve but loads of fun. Two that really caught my eye are those by Steve Conway (#1) and allieok. WOW.

I couldn't get any of my sketch or coloured renderings to look right, so I settled for ye olde sepia look (again ! Maybe it's my signature tech

Sepia is nice, Nimbus. It makes it almost timeless.
