I enjoyed playing around with this photo!
Lets see, I used multiply layer mode and screen mode alot.
Smudged around with different brushes.
Used motion blur and sharpened.
Can't think of anything else I did.

Added some Color Range color selections on separate layers to the notepaper image, and varied opacities and layer blend modes --

Your mosaic really shows off well in the larger size! I especially like the sepia and the blue/greens also!

Thanks very much, CJ for your kind words.
Your second image makes me think of a Wood Nymph on a frosty morning, very organic and interesting.

I like that idea -- she'd make a tantalizing Wood Nymph, I'm sure!

This one emphsizes the coppery tones, with some texture (and keeping the reds) to add emphasis. I used the Liquify-Reflection tool to stir some leaf pixels around to the lower left.

I think she's more "dangerous" looking than a Wood Nymph, now...

raniday, great picture to work on, the sepia and neon renditions are cool, I wonder how you did the sepia one, missed your great looking edges !
nancyj, I liked your quick watercolor renditions
alcar, wow on the impressionist wc
pamsav, great lloking work on the hair, wonder what brush you used, you have some of the best hair work i have seen
cazubi, great looking work on your rendition including the texture, great looking edges too, would have been even more fab if you had texture on the edges or maybe not ?

Attached is my watercolor rendition in Painter 9.

Glad if I inspired you, Twin That's very cooool and painterly!
Chance, your high key watercolor painting is great. Actually, it has been a while since I did those others, but I'll bet the sepia one had something to do with Virtual Photographer. That's a free plugin, PC only, that gives different photographic looks.

CJ, you certainly did make her look dangerous! I find myself using the PS Liquify tool more and more. Is that the one you're talking about?

Yes, the PShot Liquify filter -- reflection tool. I have little control of any of the Liquify tools except the Bloat tool -- I can usually make the eyes a bit bigger without making them look like the "Keane" images, but the rest I play around with and usually end up cancelling out. This time I liked the result!

Lovely styles there, especially the first, very soft and watery. Thanks!
