Dont worry Patricia I am stepping up to the plate. It took a while to come up with an idea for this picture for some reason. I tried a few standard tricks but was just not satisfied. Though what I finally came up with is not unusual I am satisfied its at least different from what has already been posted.

Re: Creative portraits: Nice Gal

Peter...nice paint strokes on yours...bit late with mine but it was 3am when i got your mail...didnt have the energy to play more!!!

Jimjam...Worth waiting for...nice color tones...it is sometimes difficult to find just what you want from an image...I have stopped looking at it for ages now...waiting for inspiration...just get on with another one and sometimes it comes...sometimes!!!!!

As i painted the other two...I have just had a play with xero filters..

Patricia...

Thanks Peter and Patricia. Here is the same one in B&W increased the saturation a bit.

Pretty girl with a mysterious air about her. So I capitalized on that.

Re: Creative portraits: Nice Gal

I've liked a lot of these renditions, thinking especially what a difficult picture to paint well. Kudos to all who have tried and succeeded.

Janet

Re: Creative portraits: Nice Gal

Great renditions on this thread. Here's another one. Done in PS largely but texture added in Painter.
