Orange Tulips

Things have been awfully quiet in here of late. Suspect that Real Life is interfering with people's creativity. <Grin>

Here a photo I took back in May 2007 at the International Tulip Festival held each year in Ottawa (Ontario, Canada).

And a watercolour I created using Vitaly's wonderful tutorial.

Hope you like. And I hope you'll find time to play. <smiel>

Re: Orange Tulips

Thanks for the play Gene. Decided to oil paint on glass for this one.

Re: Orange Tulips

Very nice Lyle - Looks like the color has been melted into the glass.

Re: Orange Tulips

Great post Gene and you beat me to the punch using Vitaly's watercolor technique. It really works well with this photo. Here's my go at a soft colored pencil look.

Re: Orange Tulips

@ Grant: love your rendition. Much softer than mine.

@Lyle: Wow! Love that.

@Skip: Would have liked to see your rendition using Vitaly's Tut. Find it pretty interesting how a slight change in setting here or there can strongly effect the outcome. Your coloured pencil version is quite nice.

@Lyle: Grab Mary's newest AOP and let DAP do it for you. (re: being too lazy to try it yourself <Smile>)

Re: Orange Tulips

Gene - Ask and you shall receive. It looks like I'm leaving mine a little rougher or less detailed than you are. I like it both ways.

Re: Orange Tulips

Nice, Skip. I have a tendency to give mine a bit too much detail. Need to learn to back off a tad.

Re: Orange Tulips

Hello to all you,

All your pictures were great creative.


Thank you for the fun play.

I set plastic wrap and brightness -10 and contrast + 100 in photoshop cs4.
