Wonderful serene picture. Played with a ton of different things but decided to stick with a simple Pop Artist action by MF. One of my faves. Thanks for this one Danny!

Cheers

Very pretty photo.

Reflected water in sky, merge into new layer added a little canvas texture, then merged into new layer, destaturated and used blend-if sliders to bring back color into the light and dark areas more than the midtones.

Roger: Comparing your subtle changes to the original = pretty amazing the improvements you made. ~Danny~

Duv:

pOpArTiSt is one of Mike's more amazing actions, available with many other free actions here: http://homepages.slingshot.co.nz/~mikefinn/action.html

Glad you liked the pic; your interpretation is a creative combination of bold and uncluttered.

My Impressionist experiments continue. See attachment for Layers Palette snapshot.

I modified one of my favorite brushes (Charcoal: Default) as follows. Brush size = 350%, pressure = 110%. This rendered big wide strokes vs. the little dinky ones you get by default. The Impressionist: Paint - Flour. Palette Knife layer used this variant, but I made the brush a little smaller to render a little more texture.

alright - I really don't remember what I did.... but:
I copied the background layer twice, set the middle one to multiply, then the top one to pin light, and varied the opacities a bit.

after that, I applied the dry brush filter, then the rough pastels filter and faded that.
i masked out the boat so that the original came through, then i copied the original layer again, and changed the blend mode to screen to lighten the boat a bit more. ohh wait... I ate a pizza in there somewhere, and that was a vital step.

For the border, I just made a bottom black layer, and then masked out a border around the boat, applied angled strokes, blurred it, then applied spatter.

So that's the secret of creativity! (LOL) With or without Pepto?

Well, you get a solid A+ for experimenting and having some fun while doing it, Greg. Glad you jumped in with an inspiring interpretation.

What the heck was in that pizza? Nice job Greg. Specially like the idea of masking out the boat and lightening it.

Cheers

No pizza in this one, just a couple of pints of Guiness in honor of Saint Patty.

Also included:
* Redfield Lattice Composer
* Redfiled Water Ripples
* Rosenman Diffuse
* MS Impressionist

Enjoy!
Jeff
