    Thanks to Jeanie who climbed a ladder to take this fantastic photo of a family of robins in their nest. Mom looks so proud of her brood, and who can blame her? I just know this is going to be a very popular challenge!

    Jeanie - very nice picture, and very brave for climbing the ladder!
    Fishboy - nice lacquer job as usual. (you must order it by the 5 gallon pail).

        Jeanie - Wow what a great image to work with --- Thanks.

        fishboy- very nice! the lacquer works with this image --- I think we are going to have to start calling you "Sir Lacquer" ! lol

        Bill C. - love both submissions - the frame on the first one is a great idea. BUT the second one --- the lighting softness with the slight hint of lines --- Thumbs up

        Here's mine. smudge - added sandstone textue, then dry brush.

            Jill - very nice, I like both renditions, but the first one is my favorite ...nice dry brush with sandstone...
            Fishboy ... excellent! Going traditional!? The mat/framing are just that something extra on this one that makes it stand out. Nice job.

              Fishboy...Great texture with the lacquer.

              Bill C Both submissions are lovely but I have to say the second is my favorite.

              Jill...Like them both. I kind of like the second one better.

              Here is mine. Used multipal layers.
              desaturated then used pattern stamp and various brush styles. Added Vignette.

                Fishboy -
                I really like your first one, it has great texture!

                Bill C -
                I love your first one. It's also full of texture, almost 3-D. And the torn paper edge is perfect with the bg. Great work!

                Jill -
                Excellent job on the smudging. You're getting so good at that. I can't smudge for the life of me

                Jean -
                Good work. I like how you handled the lines, makes for a nice sketchy base.

                I also used Effie...this is Effie Deluxe.

                  Had to try my hand at this wonderful picture. Cant remember what I did maybe, cutout, edges, watercolor then matte and frame.

                    Thanks for the nice comments on the photo everyone. I love what you've all done with it!

                    Fishboy - I love the "sparkle" in your first version, but your second one with the frame is just great. That mat/frame combo really works with the photo!

                    BillC - I love your watercolor version! (I wasn't being that brave up on the ladder - I was only about four feet up. Besides, my husband tells me that when I have a camera in my hand, i'm a lot more "adventurous" than when I don't. I just gotta get that shot! )

                    Jill - Your painting is my favorite! I think you can safely say that you've learned that technique and apply it well!

                    Jean - I love the style, just wish it was a tad lighter (though that could easily be my monitor as well! )

                    Pam - The way you made the beaks of the babies glow is perfect!

                    Lacto - Very cool effect! (I just with the mother's beak didn't have the green on it.)

                      Fish, great lacquer look, and I like the shape as well. The second one is a striking moody portrait...love it!

                      Bill C, very nice watercolor with perfect framing. Your second version is just superb...love the simplicity and softness and how it fades away...beautiful!

                      Jeanie EXCELLENT smudgeroo!

                      Jill, your Effie has bit of 3D to it...nice!

                      Jean, lovely portrait, nice mottled overall texture.

                      Pam, nice and simplified the way I like ‘em! Smooooth!

                      Lacto, neat look with the outlined areas...clever.

                      I loved this picture soooo much that I made six different versions at one sitting...couldn’t stop! I won’t bore you with all of them, but here are the three simplified/outlined sorts. Version #1: Basic abstract method

                        Version #2: Outline layer with anisotropic diffuse blended over smart blur layer combined with low opacity abstract layer, KPT6 materializer for slight 3D effect on birds and trees.

                          Version #3: Since I cannot use Effie (not made for Macs) I have been trying to get a similar look. In this attempt I started with basic outline method, duped several layers at multiply, merged, then applied anisotropic diffuse, very high contrast and increased brightness, setting layer to soft light.

                            Phillis....You achieved the Effie look. Nicely done.

                              Hey Phyllis - it's OK to take a break and get some sleep once in a while! You sure are cranking them out!! Very nicely done - each of them. It looks like you've been watching Bill M's success with the diffuse/ansiotropic filter effect. Nice job. - keep experimenting!
                              Have a nice weekend.
