Creative interpretations - Sailing

Although it is winter in the U.S. we can always look forward to summer weather, right?

My interpretation: The Akvis sketch plugin was used for the top layer of edges/line detail (blend mode = Darken) with Impressionist plugin rendered layers below it. I used a modification of the Aron Pencil style found in the #KentC.zip custom styles collection.

Check out this thread for Kent's styles (it's down a few screens):

I'm with CJ with this one Danny I like that.

I can't believe I'm the first, besides yourself Danny, who has tried this one.

It's winter by calendar. Where is snow?

Sorry Danny, I have changed a flag on Russian.

Danny, I'm a jinx around boats, starting from the time I was about 9 years old and droped the motor off the back of my uncle's trolling boat. But they are fun to paint! :-) Thanks for the play.

Winter for most of U.S., but not in areas like where Swampy lives, where it is usually sunny. Where I live (near Canada) the weather is very much cooler.

I REALLY LIKE your interpretation of this sailboat. The Russian flag is a creative addition! Would you describe what program you used and some detail. I am sure many would like to know more.

Re: Creative interpretations - Sailing

Thanks for giving this one a go, Peter. The texture is just right, not overdone.

I know what you mean about jinx. Seasickness usually starts kicking in (for me) as I'm walking down the ramp before climbing on board!

re: Pattern Stamp Tool
Very painterly look.

Refresh my menory... Generally speaking is this where one creates a pattern from the entire image, adds a layer filled with white and then uses the Pattern Stamp Tool at low opacity to "bring it back" a click (stroke) at a time?

Re: Creative interpretations - Sailing

Yes, the Pattern Stamp Tool used with some of the artistic brushes that ship with Photoshop or cool brushes you can download from the internet can do some amazing things. I've got some Pattern Stamp brushes for download on my Tutorial page. These are some of my favorites. They are Tool Presets and need to be loaded with the PST brush selected from the Tool dropdown fly out. Instructions are included with the download.

Hi, Danny!

I am very glad your opinion of my work.
I offen study and experiment a water color with your actions set.

Each my work is individual, and I can describe technics in very general.
Long selection of sets brush, plug-ins, actions, - all gives unique effect.

Here the history in general:
1. PS open sailboat
2. shadow/lightlight
3. Smart Blur low (3-25)
4. Deep Paint – Clone with a wet brush (I shall not repeat sets, - very time change).
5. Save DP project
6. PS. Use from project CA1.png as levels mask and CM1.png as background.
7.Add layer for any brush (linear burn 50)
8.Add layer for any brush (linear dodge 50)
9. Add layer for CM2.png for sketch + Impressionist some pencil + correct (most eraser)
10. PS imitation watercolor (14-0-1) in select (or all) or not.
11. hand correct layers +saturation + contrast +etc/

Any questions.
Sorry my English.

Vitali.

Re: Creative interpretations - Sailing

Vitali-
thank you so much for your tutorial!
I was able to follow it until step 7.
What kind of brushwork are steps 7 and 8 for?

Also, I can add the Deep Paint sketch layer and run Impressionist on it.
Is the watercolor filter done on the Impressionist layer?

Thank you so much for your help! I have been admiring your work lately
