Creative Portraits: Baret

Found this pic on the net. To me she slightly resembles U.S. television actress Calista Flockhart ("Ally McBeal").

With BW to start with, I'll bet there will be some interesting sketchy=chalky-charcoal interpretations on this one.

Have fun!

Like Steve's 2nd one, I used Impressionist on mine. I enlarged the image and applied a Levels adjustment before getting into "arty mode." See the Layers palette snapshot for how-to progression.

Here is Imitation gray pencil sketch. I use Photoshop CS2 only. I don't use Impressionist and Painter.
