Like JC, I'm making a mess having fun... but with Painter8 brushes. This was painted by hand, not cloning. It gave me a lot more freedom with the interpretation, and its clear I need the practice.

Sky and background (snowy) mountains basically followed this great tutorial: http://www.designertoday.com/tabinde...opDefault.aspx

The rest of the scene was just me running amuck with a mix of brushes from the Acrylics group. Final touch up in Elements2. (A towel pattern fill layer grouped to the flowers layer -- IMO "towel" in Overlay makes a way better pointillize filter than the pointillize filter itself; GBlur + Spatter on a copy of the foreground hills layer with some masking & 51% opacity to cut the "oversharp" Painter output; A ton of filtering on the dirt/grass strip in the nearest forground which I made way too flat / monotoned in Painter.)

-Mark

Neve, i love the way that turned out!

I was tempted to use the impr filter too, and this is what i did with my image:
On original layer, image adj- levels to brighten.
Next layer - white fill, for art history brush. I used the Nagel Series 12-14 brush, downsized to 7, for my brush. Used the same brush on the "Old Ford" image. Can be viewed here.
Overlay-blended with original, opac 50%. Selected all - copy-merged, pasted as new layer.
Ran impr filter Jaykita wc A on this layer. Lowered opac to 56%.
Selected all, copy merged, pasted as new layer. Used ps wc filter 14,0,1.

Painted Tulip Girl

Another go, this time in Painter, roughly steps taken...

Tulip Heads (Clone) Oils/Smeary Bristle Spray
Tulip Heads Blenders/Smear
Leaves and Ground (Clone) Oils/Fine Camel
NO CLONE - Undergrowth - picked a green and added extra colour
using Oils/Fine Camel.
Cloned Hair/Mostly Non-Cloned hair however adding back some colours using
Oils/Fine Camel.
Cloned Face - Wet Oils Cloner
Blenders/Smear - face
Some Soft Clone to face.
Dress - Clone - Fine Camel Oil.
Dress/Hair/Skin - Blender/Soft Stump

Got no idea if this will be seen clearly once compressed???
