Thanks Goldcoin. I love the mood that you achieved with your rich, warm colors. I also like the painterly effect that it has.

Cathy - Your montage looks great, you chose the images really well.

Goldcoin - I love your painting. You got a nice balance between the rougher background strokes and the detail. Beautiful colours too.

I am trying a different approach...flat and more graphic. I was thinking poster.

Thanks Pam for your comments.

Finally got round to tackling this one myself Prepared it for painting in PS with some Buzz Simplifier, Flaming Pear India Ink and lots of blend modes. Into Painter and used Den's Messy Oil Brush over a Jeremy Sutton handmade paper texture. Back into PS to enhance the texture and added Trimoon's canvas over the top (the paper texture didn't show up well enough for me).

That's one outstanding effect, Pam.

I know of Den's "Funky Chunky."

Where did you get "Messy Oils"?

Danny, the Funky Chunky is just one of a whole set of Den's brushes.

Actually I like the others more - maybe it's a question of style, maybe the lack of a tablet.

Thanks all

Danny - if you downloaded your Den's Funky Chunky from Marilyn's site you should have the Messy oil brush in the same collection. I think its actually called Oil Brush Messy

Ro - I totally agree. Den's brushes are my favourites (along with some of the Jeremy Sutton ones that come with his Painter Creativity book).
