Creative interpretations: Flower Market

With Fall and Winter approaching, can we pretend it's Springtime?

More experimenting with Virtual Painter. Multiple layers including Watercolor, Collage and Oil Painting using different blend modes.

Before applying the filters I did a lot of surgery to the deep shadowed areas in the image.

Great job with VP Danny--I like the look you achieved.

This is a color layer and a sketch layer blended together.

For the color layer I used spatter and paint daubs.

For the sketch layer, find edges (lightened to get rid of the gray noise), cutout, ansiotropic, and texture-grain-speckle.

Nice work Danny and Cheryl.

Here is an ink and watercolor.

Created two layers. Did a dry brush and normal smart blur on first. Did a smart blur edges only, invert, poster edges on the second. Played with the opacities a bit and flattened. Used a curves layer to boost brightness.

Nice picture, Catia I like your Ink and watercolor. The detail is the part I like the most. Mine is my still playing with PAM.
Thanks for the opportunity Danny.

I like all of these, but especially yours Bob.

What is PAM? How did you do that?

Thanks,
Jeff

Bob, that looks really good. I like the way that it looks like a painting but still retains detail and sharpness. Too often mine turn out looking like photos on acid instead of art!

Cheers
Tony

Bob, thanks for the information. I've actually looked into Photo ArtMaster, just didn't recognize the initialism.

Here's my take on it:
* Eliminated distracting objects (cars, people)
* Recolored gray street & building to with a pink shade
* Virtual Painter pastel
* Median Filter (I hate the little bright spots from VP Pastel)
* Color adjust (lots of it!)
* Resize

Thanks,
Jeff

Bob:

Don't know how I missed yours, but that's a wonderful creation. I was so inspired by it, I dusted of BuzzPRO to see if I could come close. The edging treatment really sets it off.

Jeff:

I was inspired by yours too, by the creative use of Virtual Painter. I'd a never guessed VP had its fingerprints on this one.

You're probably aware (but in case not) PAM and Buzz are first cousins (PAM=standalone application; works on .jpgs only. Buzz=plugin).

- - - - -

So this 2nd version of mine is a combo of Buzz and VP
* Top layer: Hue/Saturation adjustment layer
* VP Collage filter, layer masked for selective application
* Smart Blur/Edge Only + Gaussian Blur .5 (Darken), layer masked for selective application
* Buzz Simplifier 1 -- blatently trying to more or less recreate Bob's results.

- - - - -

Nice work, both of you.
~Danny~
