Maybe not terribly imaginative but more practice in Painter for me.
Thanks, Legacy~Art.

Very nice, Neve; looks like an acrylic on canvas.

Thank you all for the nice comments. Yes, Legacy I am a female
I don't have much of a tutorial on this one. I just painted it in Painter w/ cloning and splashy watercolor brushes and outlined a bit w/ the 2B pencil, adding the solid background w/ paint, added a gaussian blur layer over it in PhotoShop to soften, used an edge mask/frame and added sandstone texture. Thanks again for the pretty photo.

Notice your quotes are from great men! Ha! OK. You cats win. So here's a submission from an old, tired dog..zzzzzzz...oh ya, I like the way the flower appeared so much higher from the ground..as if it was streaking skyward. I selected the flower and pumped the contrast up in Levels. Inverted and did a Radial Blur spin. Ran a cartoon action and slightly darkened the edges with a Darken Edges and Corners action...............i feel so emasculated.....

COME ON GUYS...HELP ME OUT HERE!! SO WHAT IF IT'S A ROSE!!

A rose for the ladies

I like roses too. Here's my attempt:

Made a 'wreath' out of the existing leaves and added a blured leaf background to hide the dirt. Isolated the rose on its own layer and 'subtracted' a high pass 3 copy (inverted, linearlight, 40%) to get a nice, soft focus look. Merged this all together. Cropped & resized. Copied this layer and applied the WaterColor filter. Lowered opacity and added a layer mask to make the rose less filtered. Played around with some vignette stacks to finish.

-Mark
