Poppy pics

Lately I've been playing with painting poppy pictures. (How 'bout that alliteration!)
Anyway, I took these last June and July and it's kind of a relief to know that this snow will pass and the green will come back. So I thought I'd post some poppy promises of summer. (There I go again)

Re: Poppy pics

Beautiful picts, Shari. Thanks for sharing them.

Here are my first two attempts.

The first done in PS C4 following Vitaly's watercolour tut; some additional processing in PSPv9. The second some in DAP -- FunkyOils AOP with both blur & detail brush masks. Again some additional processing in PSPv9.

Thanks for the play

Re: Poppy pics

Gene-I love the work you do with Vitaly's tut. I can't follow it since I don't have either Photoshop or CS but I sure do admire what comes out of it.
Lynn-Those colors are great. I wish I could grow a real poppy with all those hues.
Peter-Fabulous as always. What did you use as a background in the first one?
Gunner-Wow. I had to look at my picture again to see if it really had the details you brought out and I love how the background works with the photo.
Lyle-As usual you send me to google, but I'm still scratching my head. Is Fine Art a program or filter or are you just referring to your style of editing?

Re: Poppy pics

I forgot to post one of the pictures I worked on. I've been playing lately with Fotosketcher 2 and this is one that I really liked from the program.

Thanks Shari, it was one I made myself from several other pics on different layers and messed with blend modes and masks. Here is another example of something similar.
