Re: Sitting Pretty

Peter - you beat me to it!

Palms, I'll bet that "cheeky little devil" is just grandmother talk for loads of personality and the ability to get grandma to do what she wants most of the time. She was an angel in that image, and what she did 5 minutes later doesn't change that!

It depends who you're "talking" too, we all have very different techniques.
Mine involves the use of the Impressionist plug-in and a fine layer of Nik Pastel.

Re: Sitting Pretty

Could you explain that in more detail. Like, is it software you need to buy? If so, what kind, and where?

thanks, john

The Impressionist plug-in is free. You can download from my website at
http://photoart-tutorials.com/index_tutorials.htm.
It's at the bottom of the page.
I hope you work on Windows as it doesn't work on Mac computers

Nik's pastel is one of the many plug-ins of the Nik software company.
You can find more about them on their site at
http://www.niksoftware.com/colorefex..._filters.shtml

Good luck
Sylvia

PS: There are tons of free plug-ins on the Internet. If you're new at digital art, you might want to experiment with free stuff first.
Here's a page that lists a lot of them:
http://thepluginsite.com/resources/freeps.htm
Personally, the ones I use the most are Impressionist, Topaz Clean and once in a while Nik's pastel.
