Re: Sitting Pretty

Wow Palms; a great capture for play. I really like your result too Peter. Anyway, I made the decision that the white out window had to go; my result might be that good because of it, but oh well. Used Impressionist, FotoSketcher, and a few other things for the result.

Re: Sitting Pretty

Ha ha Steve and Peter (no flowers, or cats, huh )
mind you, you should be grateful that i cannot post facial shots of the grandkids as there are thousands of them

Steve love the brush strokes in this one

Peter great swirling background and emphasis on the dress

and that is a great result Lyle inspired me to perhaps try one on a black background
