  • Spring flowers.

    It's finally spring here. Here's a nice purple crocus to artify.
    Or a helleboris. My favorite since it blooms first of all my plants. Also it's my only true green flower.
    I smudged the crocuses a little and then used xero's caravaggio filter on a layer and blended with luminosity.

    Beautiful flowers, thanks for the play. I used Impressionist for both.

                John-The helleborus (can never spell this right) looks like a real watercolor. Did you use any particular preset in Impressionist?

                Lynn-Interesting. I would have never thought of combining the pictures.

                Lyle-As always, a very unique approach. (Somehow that seems like an oxymoron.)

                  Fran, whatever you call it, it's a very nice picture.

                  Grant, I love it. The colors are wonderful together.Even the thumbnail is impressive, but the larger picture is great. What did you use to create the texture?

                    Palms, all I can say is wow!
                    Maybe I'm glad your hellebores aren't blooming yet. I absolutely love helleborus plants even though I can never spell it right.
                    This one is the only one I seem to be able to raise. I have two black walnut trees in my yard and some plants are poisoned by the roots. I think that is what happened to a couple other variety of hellebores that I tried to start.
                    I'd like to see picture of yours when they bloom.

                        Thanks Shari. I used a grunge texture I downloaded, can't remember where from though. There are lots available on the net.

                          Thanks for the kind words. I merged two copies together. One was a vectorized version and one was a simplified version. Not sure what method, lighten mode maybe. In Impressionist I use different settings for each image. Trail and error by just changing until I like the effect.

                            I have no idea why I made it look like flames in the BG, I think I just liked the contrast it made.

                              Trying a few G'MIC preset blends and this came of it.
