Cherry and Apple Blossoms

I took these photos last week and I thought you might like to paint them or artify them some how. Can't wait to see what you come up with.

Re: Cherry and Apple Bloosoms

Peter that is very pretty, did you smudge it?

It seemed like a slow day on RP, that was why I posted these to play with.

Here is one I did.

Re: Cherry and Apple Bloosoms

Ice4, desat Grain Extract (some adjustements), GREYC (plus Cybia's Colorworks to give that greenish yellow tinge that he's famous for)= Van Gogh

That's my formula anyway for simulating him. Actually work less then 5 minutes, but figuring the layer opacities and such adds a few more to it.

Now if only I can get a simple (and free) formula to sketches (in particular, da Vinci sketches). Guess I need to channel the spirits of the past to give me further insites. lol

Re: Cherry and Apple Bloosoms

Used Dap for the fill part, my Van Gogh technique with some Good Vibrations for the outline part, and a few other things for this one. Click here for the full rez version.

Re: Cherry and Apple Bloosoms

OK Cathy. Got too more (of the final flower that I didn't do as of yet). Experimenting with using ASCII-Gen for the Lite-Brite interpretation and if you don't like that one, I added a vector simplication blend of the same bouquet.

Re: Cherry and Apple Bloosoms

Lyle, those a great too, very versified styles you have. The first one looks like it could be used to cross stitch or embroider on a shirt.

Palms - that is SO nice! I love the colors, texture and depth.

I like to take photos of flowers, and I have a redbud tree posted for the photo contest already, it is always hard to decided which the judges will like the best.
