Re: Water lilies

Very nice photos -- fun to play with. I enjoyed looking back at everyone's renditions.

Re: Water lilies

Thanks Gunner for resurrecting the water lilies. The ones in the pond are pretty much gone. A few leaves are hanging on and the fish and frogs are still lively. Interesting texture in your painting.
Lynn and Fran, thanks for the nice comments. Every once in a while I get lucky with a photo and it turns out like I perceived it.
Lynn, I haven't heard of Photoscape. I'll search for it as soon as I post this.
Fran, that's a lovely painting and the frame really sets it off.

Re: Water lilies

Here's a go at an Oil Painting effect. The canvas texture got kind of lost when picture was reduced for posting.

Re: Water lilies

I like it Skip. There's an ethereal quality about it. Maybe it's a good thing that the canvas texture disappeared.

Re: Water lilies

Thanks Shari. I printed it on actual canvas and was very pleased with how the paint thickness appearance held up in the picture.

Did you do this in Photoshop, something by Corel, or what may I ask?

Re: Water lilies

Hi Gunner. It started in Dynamic Auto Painter (DAP) using the Whistler painting effect. From there I took it to Photoshop and used the Akvis/Artwork plugin to add some paint strokes. I then used Photoshop's Filter/Render/Lighting to give the appearance of depth to the paint strokes and other parts of the picture. I then added a texture effect. That's the down and dirty. I haven't written down the step-by-step, but I probably should before I forget them.

Re: Water lilies

Very nice Gunner. It has a real oil painting look.
