    Wonderful serene picture. Played with a ton of different things but decided to stick with a simple Pop Artist action by MF. One of my faves. Thanks for this one Danny!

    Cheers

      Very pretty photo.

      Reflected water in sky, merge into new layer added a little canvas texture, then merged into new layer, destaturated and used blend-if sliders to bring back color into the light and dark areas more than the midtones.

        Roger: Comparing your subtle changes to the original = pretty amazing the improvements you made. ~Danny~

          Duv:

          pOpArTiSt is one of Mike's more amazing actions, available with many other free actions here: http://homepages.slingshot.co.nz/~mikefinn/action.html

          Glad you liked the pic; your interpretation is a creative combination of bold and uncluttered.

          My Impressionist experiments continue. See attachment for Layers Palette snapshot.

          I modified one of my favorite brushes (Charcoal: Default) as follows. Brush size = 350%, pressure = 110%. This rendered big wide strokes vs. the little dinky ones you get by default. The Impressionist: Paint - Flour. Palette Knife layer used this variant, but I made the brush a little smaller to render a little more texture.

            alright - I really don't remember what I did.... but:
            I copied the background layer twice, set the middle one to multiply, then the top one to pin light, and varied the opacities a bit.

            after that, I applied the dry brush filter, then the rough pastels filter and faded that.
            i masked out the boat so that the original came through, then i copied the original layer again, and changed the blend mode to screen to lighten the boat a bit more. ohh wait... I ate a pizza in there somewhere, and that was a vital step.

            For the border, I just made a bottom black layer, and then masked out a border around the boat, applied angled strokes, blurred it, then applied spatter.

              So that's the secret of creativity! (LOL) With or without Pepto?

              Well, you get a solid A+ for experimenting and having some fun while doing it, Greg. Glad you jumped in with an inspiring interpretation.

                i really think it was the pizza that helped pull off the picture you need to crush some rainbow peppercorn on it, that gives it the umph

                  What the heck was in that pizza? Nice job Greg. Specially like the idea of masking out the boat and lightening it.

                      Nice submissions everyone.

                      Danny--really liked the impressionist work.

                      This is a mix of lucis art, virtual painter oil, and a little nik midnight.

                          boat

                          I gave the pic some rain with PMartgallery graphic pen, then converted the pic to greyscale. Then merged it with the original. Then added Flaming Pear Melancholytron

                            Used mainly Buzz, xero filters and multiple masks, painting in and out.

                              Beautiful rendition! Great detail too! I don't have Buzz. Anything else that might give me similar effect?

                              Cheers
