Hey, WideAngle...

Glad to see you dive into the photo-art forum swimming pool. Welcome.

Your results here are very effective across the board...
* Subtle coloring
* Tone mix
* Skin smoothing

Andee would be pleased. Keep 'em coming.

Blackboard sketch

Something different from all these lovely contributions. Hope Andee approves!
5 layers...upwards
1. bkgr layer
2. levels to lighten and slightly posterize. Screen 22% opac.
3. g'blur overlay 100%
4. Render lighting effects - default, directional, channel red and material, exposure and ambience almost maxm.
5. chalk and charcoal filter.
Final touch up -- selective color - neutrals to black.

...just another admirer standing up to be counted..
- Used a skin gradient to tone down the colors, leaving only the eyes and lips untouched;
- Made separate layers masked from darkest to lightest;
- Layer BB has all the details and remains untouched throughout;
- Blurred and applied a simple Impressionist filter (chalk soft pastels)to each of the others ;
- Tweaked the blendings until I got the look I wanted.

Hey, Ro:

Nice combination of effects here. You made a lovely lady look even better.

Jaykita: Two very creative looks. I especially like the blackboard approach, a first, I believe, for this forum. Nice job of "coloring outside the lines" (technique-wise). Well done.

Thought I'd have a bit of a go using some of Trimoon's ideas on watercolor. Created a blank layer, filled with white and with History brush using Steve's watercolor brush presets, painted over. Created mask and painted back a bit of eye and mouth detail.

Cheers
Dave

That turned out pretty good, Dave. I like how you left a little of the "canvas" unpainted. I'm still struggling with the method.
