Re: cottage

Been thinking on this for a while. Finally, got rid of the cars, wire, sky and then went with a watercolor.

Re: cottage

Thanks Nancy -- I basically used Vitaly's Piker Watercolor but in this case let the pigment layer come through more and it gave it a more splotchy look.

Re: cottage

Still playing with this great picture. Wanted a painted effect and I kind of like the result. But how I got here I'm not sure. Started with GMX PhotoPainter II (two different effects, Oil and Bristle) copied each to Photoshop as layers on the original (without the cars), different opacities on each layer, flattened layers, added layer with Akvis Snap Art Oil effect, reduced opacity, and added HSL, Brightness/Contrast, and Selective Color tweaks.

You got your wish, Skip. Your version certainly looks painted.

Re: cottage

Thanks Fran and Nancy, That was my first try with GMX PhotoPainter. I think I'm going to like it.

I am just loving the Pixel Bender Oil Paint filter for Photoshop.

That's one of my favorites too...it's like a simplifier on crack

I really like your reconstruction of the front door...the flower lined path leading up to the entrance is wonderful
