It has been so long since I typed code that I drove myself crazy today trying to upload a "mouse-over". Now that I got it to work, the entire image did not fit on the screen ~ AGH!
Anyway ~ you get the idea here. Just roll your mouse over the image to see the before and after. I will upload the painted image to Flickr and add the link here so you can see it in full ~ just click here
Am having a great deal of fun giving some of the images from our recent trip to Italy a painterly look by using the Art History Brush for the base layer, then adding more color and texture with other brushwork. This image also includes a sketch outline using Topaz Simplify. This structure towers above a gorge that used to carry water from the bay to the abandoned mill ~ now there is a road down there ~ way down there.
Thank you, Marie at Love to PhotoShop for your class instructions on painting. I would never have come so far on my own.
I hope you all have a great start to your week. We have a relief in temps this week with weather in the low 80*s ~ I may need a sweater :-)
