Rolf framed

I needed an image on which to try a frame action... Rolf lost.

E-mail if you'd like to give the action a go.

That is a cool frame Danny. I really like the shadow that is cast.

This is a very cool image to play with, and everyone has done a great job. Here's my effort, mostly done in Painter using a WOW! Wet Acrylic brush.

(Danny, I tried the frame action, and I totally flopped! Got nothing even close to your results. I'll keep trying.)

Beautiful job, Cat.
That was the picture that was waiting to be painted.

(So many colours, for a minute I thought is was a "Jaykita")
