Duplicate layer. Select black. Invert selection. Flood fill with dark brown. Paint with art history brush, vary between tight short and tight medium, vary mode between lighten, darken, luminosity, and color.

Brilliantly done. Can you comment on the brush characteristics. I've never gotten AHB to look anything like this.

I used stipple 29 from the natural brushes. For the mode, I started with luminosity and then alternated between lighten and darken. In luminosity, tight long, for the rest tight medium and tight short. I also have the opacity reduced to aroun 80.

I think the key to the look is two-fold. Part of it is selecting the black (I've been trying to figure it out for images that don't have much black). The other part is filling the image with the dark brown and not covering all of it. I find I have no clue of the end result until I remove the selection.

Kiska--the blue tones and the smoke are great with this image--just the type of setting where this music was probably played.
