  • Creative interpretations: Retaurant on Beach in Crete

    Another pic from Crete. Never been there, but this looks very nice.

    Lunch, anyone?

    Thought I'd experiment with BuzzPro and Microsoft Impressionist.

    Attached is the final result. The next post has a snapshot of the Layers Palette.

    Layer notes:

    B. Use the Buzz preset Coloured Patches, but changed settings to 42 and 330.

    D. I though the sand detail got wiped out a little too much, so I restored a little by copying the original background and restoring some detail via a Hide All Layer Mask.

    E. Another MSFT Impressionist layer, but I changed the settings a bit to get larger, more defined strokes.

    F. Selectively applied a Hue shift and Saturation boost to all areas except the sand and mountains

    G. A little more boost to the tree leaves.

    This is FUN!

        Nice work Danny.

        I thought this would look nice done up by the David Roley Hayes Cafe action.

            Great stuff

            Although I am overly found of anything hayes Islandish I have to say Danny, that is the closet to looking like a hand done painting i have ever seen. Great job as always.

              Danny-- I love the bold colors and the way the little bits of white show through--like where paint missed the canvas.

              C--Hayes Island worked well on this image.

              I started with some custom impressionist presets (my ink and thin watercolor action), then deleted the find edges layer the actions creates. Put a copy of the original on top and used the bold lines action from a new set I'm working on.

                  Thanks for your comment Cheryl. Nice watercolor look to your version.

                  Christine, I like the ink outline result. The texture is a little heavy for me. I guess I am a light on the texture person. BTW, I have found that if I go to Edit - Fade after applying texture and fiddle with the fade control I can get an in between result that is sometimes better than the texture setting. You probably already know that. Sorry, just trying to be helpful.

                      I’m trying to learn how to control Virtual Painter.

                      This one I used some
                      BuZZ Pro: Simplifier (4058) and Blur More
                      Smudging to Soften Edges
                      and Texture

                        I'm rather humbled by the beauty of the various renderings of this image!

                        I took the easy way out, rather than attempting to updo anyone. I did a VP collage with everything set to -5 except color which was -4 and focus which was +5.

                        Then I softened it, added a mild texture and used the PSP8 warp brush to turn the lines in the sky into gulls.

                          Such a beautiful, tranquil setting. But in the light of recent tragic events, one wonders if....
                          Anyway, here's my latest technique of using brushstrokes in ps7, coupled with vp airbrush and buzzpro.

                            JCH - Great result and well done.
                            Amy - I love this - bold and strong. Perfectly suited for this image.
                            Clever use of the warp tool I must say...!
                            Steve - Glorious result, the colours appear almost luminous!
                            Jaykita - Wonderful soft result - surely a "keeper" for future use.

                              Painter 8.1

                              Time: 1 hour

                              Cloned using Digital Water Colour/Dry Brush throughout

                              Blenders/New Simple Blender

                              Added some extra cloud using Dry Brush

                              Cloners/Soft Clone - used to bring back some
                              detail especially around tablecloth edges, chairs
                              and table condiments.

                              Dropped all layers then duplicated.
                              Gel mode. Lowered opacity.

                              Added a sandstone texture and frame in PSP8.1

                              I LOVE PAINTER ....absolutely the best money I ever spent.

                              "All I wanna do is have some fun,
                              I gotta feeling, I'm not the only one...."
