        It appears almost oriental looking. I like it very much. When I looked at the original picture I was blown away by the colors and couldn't imagine what could be done to change it for the better.Nice work.

          More impressionist play. Several layers blended with different custom presets on each. Topped with a sketch layer.

              Thank you. I've been working on putting together a collection of custom presets and some rookie (I'm the rookie) actions to go with them. I hope to have a second draft ready to share by the end of the weekend. For anyone with the impressionist plugin, I'd be happy to share. Just pm me your email address and I'll send them as soon as I finish stage 2 cleanup.

                svsg :very nice color palette! How do you get this result in gimp?

                cheryl : I especially like your rendering of the sky here. This could be a genuine impressionist painting!

                Mine is a sketch with aniso (twice I think) and the original layer in overlay and color on top of it + a normal layer with mask to paint some of the blue back in. I could have put one of these layers through luce or a xero filter, I don't remember.

                  Gina, Very different result, nice work especially the butterfly. On my version, I don't remember what I did exactly, but I played with the middle slider of Levels for all 3 colors.

                        The impressionist plugin shipped with Microsoft Image Composer. It can be found on the Front Page 98 CD. I understand that FP2000 has it as well.

                        If you use Corel Photopaint, there's an effect called alchemy that does virtually the same thing. It's not in .8bf (plugin) fomat.

                        The company that created it sells a version 2 called paint alchemy http://www.xaostools.com/products/pamain.html .
                        I find it harder to use than the old version 1, but it does give some nice (also different) effects. I have been using version 1 with the photoart I've been posting.

                          thx svsg.

                          Catia I love your version too. It look s a bit like my second one here.
                          I used some of the presets from Cheryl on different layers and a texture layer.
                          Thanks Cheryl. The brushes and presets I used were all great!!! Thanks for sharing!

                            Butterfly at night (I guess).

                            After a lot of frustration, false starts, trial and (mostly) error I stumbled onto this unusual effect by duplicating the original image, putting it over a highly modified version of the original and changing the blend mode to Difference. After flattening the image the Lighting Effects filter was applied.
