Lady with a rose

Essentially, I just colorized using a 3 adjustment (blue, red & gold) layer process and played around with different textures. Sorry, I can't remember which ones I kept. Initially, I preferred the higher contrast but then the addition of a color balance adjustment layer provided, what I thought, was a nice alternative, a gift from the photoshop gnomes.

Very nice effect you achieved here. Glad to see your first post in the forum. Welcome aboard.

Regarding your methodology... (I've not a clue how you did this.) Did you do something like create three individual layers set to blend mode=color, fill them red, blue and gold, then selectively apply the coloration via layer masks? Or what?

Then the 2nd version came about via a Color Balance adjustment layer? (Gotta love those PS gnomes).

Thanks, Danny. I've seen this tutorial http://www.worth1000.com/tutorial.asp?sid=161015 from worth1000.com mentioned in another thread somewhere, but you are quite right about the 3 colored layers. I'm glad you could read between the lines. Being a purist at heart, this is my method of choice.

I generally use a variation of this tutorial using adjustment layers. I created 3 layers, blue, red and gold, filled the red & gold with 50% gray and changed opacity to 90% and blending mode to color on all 3 layers. I then use black on the mask to block color and white to keep it and use a variety of brushes and opacities depending on the picture. It seems to work best on good quality photographs and doesn't work at all on some.

Just boosted midtone green to +39 on the color adjustment layer .

Flapper

I loved working on this image!
I did this with hue/sat layers combined with individual layers set to blend mode color, which I then painted on using a soft brush. To finish it up I created a soft vignette with a pattern overlay.

Lovely interpretation. Just the right touch.

Alexander... Your work is AMAZING.

Which of Painters brushes do you use? (Painter 9 "Artist's Oils"?)

...and your English is much, MUCH better than my Russian! It is an honor that you have joined us.

Thank you very much for your good words!
I use Artist's Oils (Painter 9) on "Lady with a Rose" also.
But I can use also other Painter's brushes. Oil brushes, Blender...
