Here are my current entries for Rima’s challenge. You can see the deatils of the challenge on her blog on this post. You can also see some other people’s entries in the posts after this one. here is the original image to work on. You can see more details on how to use Studio Artist on this post on my blog.
This painting is done in Studio Artist using warp translate and rotate tools quite a few times.

I then took “Peeking Through the Lilies” and used translate local to make the swirls to make these lilies dance.

“Dancing with Lilies” was turned into this painting with with more translate local and some sphere2.

More rotates and translates create this next painting.

Then it became time to try a different method. I decided to move to Photoshop and see what to do there … I actually made “Night Light Lily” before I made this painting. This is an exclusion layer over the Night Light Lily. I copied the layer several times and the top layer is exclusion mode is on the top.

This is a luminous mode over “Night Light Lily.”

Exclusion over saturation mode creates “First Blush Lily.”

Saturation mode creates this Night Light Lily. I made several more variations of this but got tired of prepping them for the web … so this was great fun!

I tried a whole bunch of filter in both Photoshop and Digital Studio and I don’t know how I got these next two paintings. So sorry … I didn’t follow the rules.

This was tweaked quite a bit in Studio Artist.

I think the bottom image is my favorite. But then Im just a sucker for soft blurred out imagery. Looking at the progression of the Studio Artist images here, it reminds me a bit of Paint Shop Pro capabilities. Ive not used PSP much. Have you ever?
This exercise was fun wasn’t it? I am just learning these graphical tools and had such a wonderful time. I see you did also. Nice work showing off the possibilities. Love the tweaked one at the end!
A quickie – taking a very short break out of my workshop on “How to tatoo fingernails” to comment on how dazzingly ravishing all of the above are. And you wicked Di, you still insist on calling that a painting, you have just a twisted sense of humor, I could kiss you on the earlobe! I’ve got to go back to my learning in Live and Organic Arts. I love Newt and his pigmies, he is such a sexy R-nuke. I’ve got to run…
Hi Sue, Bobbie and Soul Fish,
Thank you for stopping by!
Sue, I have not used PSP – it is PC and I am Mac … so the twain shall never meet on that particular program!
So glad you like that one, Bobbie! I almost didn’t save it … and then decided to – now glad I did.
Soul Fish, thank you for taking the time out of your busy tatooing to read this blog!! You are tight, I am still wickedly saying paintings can be digital … Enjoy your Life Arts – may you be very successful!
