Question for all of you-how do you keep track of what you do when you are working with a photo? I start out with good intentions of tracking what I do, then a little tweak here and a little tweak there and pretty soon I have no idea.

You are most kind Sharynideas.

Maybe Monet and Seurat both used computers. Never have figured out how Seurat had the patience to do all those little dots and come out with such great paintings.

As for remembering what you do to an image, Paint Shop Pro 9, which I use, has a history list of everything you do to an image. I just save that. Or you can also keep a written list as you go.

Each one is so different from the others. Steve, I love both of them and feel honored that you even framed the second one. Maybe Monet was a time traveler and actually did his work with a computer. (Maybe I listen to too much overnight radio.)
Lyle, you are a master at using filters and layers. Your work is always so unique.
Palms, are your light rays a plug-in or are they done with Photoshop?
Amica, to me it seems like a real fish in a make-believe world. Very different and unusual.
KTG-I have been reading somewhere that one of the main objectives in producing photo art should be that it not look as if it were made from a photo. You have done that very nicely, I think.
Olbaldy, I love the texture in your work.
Christine, I think you will find that everyone who responds to this forum is super. They not only do wonderful art work, but are kind and gracious to those of us who are just getting started. I have learned so much from the posts and have found that most people are willing to share techniques and links and give great advice.
Question for all of you-how do you keep track of what you do when you are working with a photo? I start out with good intentions of tracking what I do, then a little tweak here and a little tweak there and pretty soon I have no idea.

Shari, you said it all. I just sign under your post.

Christine

Re: Water lilies

I like the Chuck Close Mosaic look Craig (well, his is a little more abstract; lol).

Re: Water lilies

this one reminded me of an old oil that's been hanging on the wall a bit too long and could stand a cleaning

Re: Water lilies

Looks like you turned the flower into blades of colored grass. That is a cool effect.
