My first post on Retouch PRO

I have been watching and learning here for a few months now. I am constantly amazed at the talent and willingness to share knowledge from all the members. Here is an attempt at a painting of a picture I took on the Oregon coast a few years ago. Please feel free to critique.

Tom

Re: My first post on Retouch PRO

Hi Tom...

Welcome aboard from a fellow Washingtonian ... just over the hill off I-90. My folks met/got married in Spokane many years ago and I have a cousin who lives there.

Excellent job of splicing in a more interesting sky. What program(s) did you use to make this one?

Look fwd. to seeing more of your creativity in the future.

Danny,

I used CS3 for everthing, painting mostly done with AHB and a few filters.

Craig,

Great rendition, I would have never thought to do that.

Tom

Re: My first post on Retouch PRO

thanks, tom and welcome to RP. looks like yer gonna fit right in here

i was very tempted to leave all the yellow flowers in but as i started using the airbrush, the idea just kept evolving until i finally noticed i was making fog of my clouds and that took me to where i ended up

Like the starburst effect Craig (PamR?). My version's sort of hokey, but it is past 2am (always look for an excuse. lol).

Re: My first post on Retouch PRO

thank you, palms and lyle that was a fun one to work on.

i like yours too, OB. reminds me of a screened effect i once saw. i dont think it was an actual silkscreen, but there was a screen of some type involved

i dont quite understand the (PamR?) reference, lyle. what is that?

and as for your version, hokey? hehe, dont be too hard on yourself. i cheated using the starburst. i like your light better. the stars are a bit 'hokey' but we dont call it that; we just say they're more of an 'illustrated' style
