Ah, that explains it. I got Funky Chunky from the Jeremy Painter Creativity IX CD, which does not include Messy.

Too many brushes, not enough time!

Thanks for that clarification.

I am in a watercolor mode. Someday I will figure out how to do wet watercolors, but for now, digital will have to do. My dh is in Malaysia, Penang and staying at a wonderful guest house. The background is a door/wall at that guest house. BTW, he says that it should be in the 1000 things to see before you die book.

Hey, Cricket:

Glad to see you dropped in. Lovely results... very painted looking. Did you use your WC tutorial approach on this one?

Don't be a stranger (or any stranger than me!).

Yes, I used the WC approach, but this one was more difficult because of the darkness in her hat, cloak and the door behind. As you can see I dealt with that problem by changing those colors to lighter ones.

I think I am about as strange as you....

Hi All,
I've been in and out of my local hospital for a while - so I can't remember all the steps in this. I had to come back on this picture - it's a classic.
All in PSP

Paint engine - various
rain plugin
vignetted to transparency
Bottom layer filled with colour picked from mid tones of cloak and textured.

Regards to All,
Mitch.

Glad you're out of the hospital and able to get back into the saddle again.

I agree, this is definitely a classic pic and you've done a very painterly rendition of it.

Welcome back...
