Thanks Janet! If I get enough positive feedback maybe I can talk my wife into letting me get a Wacom. Now wouldn't that be sweet!

Terrific efforts Duv and JC. I found this really very difficult but you both pulled this off so very well.

The Wacom tablet is certainly worth it not only from an artistic standpoint but from an osteo standpoint. I have severe arthritis in my neck and shoulders, which affected my arm when I used a mouse. I justified the wacom on health principles alone and have NEVER regretted it. What is the $300 when compared to surgery?

Good painting, Duv

Dave,

Your Painter version turned out great. But I'm with Janet... You really should get a tablet if you can. I think the WetOils10 cloner is pretty forgiving, even when used with a mouse (making it a great beginner brush - its the first one I had really good success with). But many of the tools, at least in my clumsy hands, simply aren't functional without having the pressure sensitive control. I use the smallet, bottom of the line Wacom - Graphire3 4x5. It should be easily available for less than $100US. Possibly you can get a used one for far less. Maybe you can sweeten the deal for your wife by promising her a nice Painter portrait or 10.

Thanks Mark! That's encouraging. I thought I was going to need the Big Daddy and for that I would have had to do a LOT more than a Painter portrait!

Cheers
Dave

Did a little Draganizing on the old gal, then took her into Gertrudis Pro, then back to PSCS2 to add a little outlining, some curves and a touch of hue/sat.

High contrast aged photo on cloth.

Retinex, desaturated, Flaming Pear's Mr. Contrast and some adjustments. Flattened. Then duplicated and ran Xero's ArtiFax filter on the base layer and then adjusted the opacity on top layer to taste.

Second one is a smudge/Impressionist combo and also using Xero's ArtiFax filter for the canvas texture.
