creative interpretation - sailboat

I used a texture from Flickr by Tanakawho. Mostly AHB brush here with a touch of PE.

(& I learned a new trick from Smashing Magazine on how to make a file smaller-posterize it, that reduces the number of colors)

Re: creative interpretation - sailboat

I like both of yours, gave it a try. Added water and sky on the left, used a paint effect.

MA, like that you gave some space to the boats to give them some destination. Your painting effect fits very well
Palms, your minimalims is superb
Nas, very nice color work

Re: creative interpretation - sailboat

palms1-your work is always so elegant!
MiningArt-Beautifully painterly. I like that look where you can see the brushstrokes.

amica99-the texture had a nice color that I liked so I just used that.

Lyle, the blue is gorgeous. You made it glow! lol. As I recall it was a typical gray Dutch day. I like your version better.

Re: creative interpretation - sailboat

Hey i really like your pallet knife example Olbaldy.

Does anyone know if there is a way of getting that emboss effect without using Buzz, as i'm on a mac? I do have some of the Topaz products.
Thanks

OLBaldy-I love that pallet knife look! And yes many a Dutch picture must have the sky 'fixed'. I like what you did with it.

sponge03-I don't know about Topaz. But you can try this;

or the AHB has a pallet knife option (the trick seems to be to duplicate the layer, desaturate it, emboss it and then change the blending mode to 'overlay'). Snap Art has a nice Impasto effect.
