Surprising colors from Duv & Patricia. Pat, if you like your action, maybe you'll post it for us to try as well. Beautiful, Cathy. I am sooooo waiting for Studio Artist to come out for PCs.

Thanks, Teri. I've played with mosaics a little, but an unexpected thing happened this time that I didn't notice till I had posted it. There's a diagonal line running from about the center to the lower right corner. I don't have a clue what caused that.

Such a gorgeous image! Thanks, Cat!

This is just a simple USM with a notepaper sketch filter (using the eyedropper to choose colors from the image rather than the default black/white) added, then masked out (mostly) from the face.

Cj, simple steps to an outstanding painting.
Pat, look above and see where Alan put his presets in a zip file and posted them here for us to download. Email or PM me if you have problems.

This Autumn lady definitely has appeal, and the image allows a lot of different ideas to be used beautifully -- from NancyJ and Alan's watercolors, Amy's impressionist oil, Pam's smudging, Cazubi's painting to Twin's textures, Duv and PatriciaKay's colors, Cat's mosaic, Steve's "bit of everything" and Teri's "all but the kitchen sink"! I love it when everyone loves an image and play like crazy thinking of how they want to show it off.

P.S.
Pat if you're not comfortable with posting your file yet, not to worry. Just a suggestion, and there will be plenty of time for posting presets later on when you've grown more familiar with the forum.

Kiska, I love Studio Artist, but I don't know much yet...I just blunder my way through it right now. I did follow a couple of tutorials and it helped a little. I think you just have to keep playing with it...I like the cloning tools in the 3.0 collection, as well as the Wacom section (found in the default drop down). Just keep going in and play with the many kinds of paint styles and you will eventually find a technique that works for you.

Cathy
