More Flowers

I was looking through some old threads today and this one has a good pic to start with and some very creative interpretations, so I thought I'd choose it for one of this weeks' Creative Interps...

Wow I just found this section --- this site is so great.

This is a picture from my garden, I do not know what type of flower this is but I am thrilled every year when they come up. I just love the way they look. Well I hope you enjoy and have fun with them!
I think I'll try these now.

Jill- beautiful flowers!! And the framed version is not bad either!

PI - colored pen to about 75% then desaturated. then did unsharp mask and sharpen to get the edges out
PSP - overlayed PI version with original at 33% in multiply mode

How to kill sissy's garden

Sissy I am always envious of your garden! Here is my try at your flowers.

Used various filters and opacity. Nothing fancy.

My mother always calls them concubines, because that way she can remember the real name. Some kind of association memory assist of some sort. Anyhoo, here's a version with find edges desaturated and set to overlay (original in background), flattened, some hue/sat and curves to brighten, flattened and an emboss layer set to overlay. Sharpened slightly to bring out edges more.

Nice shot, by the way!

It's so fun to play among so many talented folks!

The background layer is based on a watercolor tutorial from http://www.myjanee.com/tuts/painted2/painted2.htm.

Applied the Lisa Neal layered frame action (click HERE ) to a desaturated version of the original image and pasted the result into another layer on top of the WC layer created with Janee's tutorial.

BK - The kaleidoscope effect would make a great stain glass piece! That looks wonderful.

Phyllis - I really like the effect on the whole image - especially the flowers. I think this effect is perfect for an image like this - I love it.

Danny - The B&W with the color is a very impressive look. I like this style a lot and will have to play with it.


Thank you all for these impresive submissions.

Playing around with history brush. I feel this mostly resembles real painting because you have to stroke the "canvas" as you would in real life.
Anyway, first adjusted the color to my taste. Layed a new white layer on top. Using various brushes at low opacity I put back the colors. I also varied the blend modes depending whether I want it darker or lighter or more saturated. The outer edges were the least "stroked" and the flowers were "stroked" the most to bring out it's full color.

Tony - love your version! Great colors and the gradual fading to the edges is a nice touch.

Amanda - rare concubine indeed. I'll have to show my mother that one sometime!
