CJ:

Isn't it amazing what you can do with Layer Masks and Blend Modes? The Layers Palette screenshot clearly illustrates "how you got here." Well done.

Thanks Amy,

I'm sure if you check out Trimoons tutorial you will find this technique is so easy - makes you feel guilty that you can create something so effective so easily.

I'm sure it could also be adapted to other programs like PSP and Painter.

I really like seeing all the different versions in this section. They are all excellent and so inspiring.

From an Impressionist plugin perspective, I can confirm it works with Photoshop, Painter, PSP, and Elements.

Okay I played in PhotoShop and Painter...

1. Retouched image in PhotoShop (levels, curves, blemish removal, whitening and removed the foreground flower). Also rebuilt the elbow to remove the foreground plant.

2. Opened in Painter and applied a painterly look with artist pastel chalk and grainy water

3. Opened back in PhotoShop and used a small brush to add hair. Applied a lighting effects filter to add a bit more sunshine glow and applied a slight warming filter.

cuty

Thisis my try, I did it in PS7. This is the combination of filter water color along with filter Plasti wrap.. some times I preffer Plastic wrap in a smooth way and apply necessary filters up on it. Then do play in levels in many times and in color balance also.

this is the result.

thanks

celestine: I'm delighted you found us and contributed this one. Based on the edges you crafted and the lighting effects it sure looks like you have been using Photoshop longer than you indicate. Keep on growing and learning. That's what it's all about here.

vijayan: Your combination of filters is very unique. I like it when an artist "takes chances" and tries something different. It is easy to do what other people have done. I admire those who are bold and experiment with new approaches. I find that inspiring.

JustChecking: Worry not about lost detail.That happens sometimes. I'm happy that you keep trying new methods and continue to develop your skills. The layers palette screenshot is very helpful.

Thank you Danny,

This was an experiment. I often try with Plastic wrap and sometimes it support very much. In this one I wanted to create some patches as we do water colour in the paper and some tonal gradations.

I thank you for the encouragements and kind appreciations..
