Ah! A cultural education opportunity: In the U.S. the equivalent advice is, "Don't fry bacon naked!" (New marketing slogan, perhaps? "RetouchPRO, where the education goes beyond the arts...")

OK. Back to photo-art...

I found a nice brush image using using keywords "brush stroke" on a search of Google Images. I cropped the image and saved it as a custom brush to be used with Impressionist. Custom brush files need to be white on black background, saved as a flat file in .tif format in Impressionist's \Brushes folder.

Then I opened style Charcoal > Default, displayed the Brushes panel, clicked 'custom,' browsed to/clicked on the new brush file to replace the original, changed the 'coverage' control value to 70%, and clicked 'Save' to create a new custom style. "Coverage" settings of less than 100% and Background = custom (white) leave "white areas."

I duplicated the Background several times and applied a different setting combination on each layer, varying brush size, coverage and/or color controls each time. On some layers I changed the layer blend mode from Normal to Darken in order to "drop out" the white on the Darken layer, thereby revealing the layer below.

Finally, merged all layers, over sharpened, added some saturation and applied Levels for contrast.

Re: A piece of Eye candy for the ladies

LOL, Danny you reminded me of this email I recieved about a "Pinny" (Apron):

The History of APRONS

I don't think our kids know what an apron is.

The principal use of Grandma's apron was to protect the dress underneath, because she only had a few, it was easier to wash aprons than dresses and they used less material, but along with that, it served as a potholder for removing hot pans from the oven.

It was wonderful for drying children's tears, and on occasion was even used for cleaning out dirty ears.

From the chicken coop, the apron was used for carrying eggs, fussy chicks, and sometimes half-hatched eggs to be finished in the warming oven.

When company came, those aprons were ideal hiding places for shy kids.

And when the weather was cold, grandma wrapped it around her arms.

Those big old aprons wiped many a perspiring brow, bent over the hot wood stove.

Chips and kindling wood were brought into the kitchen in that apron.

From the garden, it carried all sorts of vegetables. After the peas had been shelled, it carried out the hulls.

In the fall, the apron was used to bring in apples that had fallen from the trees.

When unexpected company drove up the road, it was surprising how much furniture that old apron could dust in a matter of seconds.

When dinner was ready, Grandma walked out onto the porch, waved her apron, and the men knew it was time to come in from the fields to dinner.

It will be a long time before someone invents something that will replace that 'old-time apron' that served so many purposes.

They would go crazy now trying to figure out how many germs were on that apron..
I don't think I ever caught anything from an apron ..... but Love !!


REMEMBER:
Grandma used to set her hot baked apple pies on the window sill to cool. Her granddaughters set theirs on the window sill to thaw.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Me thinks it was/is probably the same in England
