Magnolia

Magnolia

I liked the effect I used yesterday for the Fritilary so today I did something similar with this Magnolia.

I'm using a mixture of cloning brushes and an erasing rake in Painter IX.

The photo was taken yesterday in the last sunlight of the day.

I like this one too.Were you singing while you worked on it? :)

Janet - I'm on my own so I can sing without anyone hearing!

Both of these are beautiful ... I'm fascinated that they were created electronically! I hear Dory in my head, from Finding Nemo (my own words, of course) Just keep singing, singing singing. Gotta keep singing. Enjoy!

Caroline said...

Hobess - thank you! I love playing with Painter because it really does open what I can do electronically.

Tra-la-la-la!

OMG, Caroline! You should see the magnolia blossoming right outside my window! It's not quite at its peak yet, but it's so stunning. I'm going to take a picture of it very soon because I just love it. This one is blooming later than others I've seen around town because it's not in full sunlight. The ones I've seen in other neighbourhoods are just breathtaking.

I can't find my eraser rake! But I guess that's because I only have Painter Essentials..... Well, if my business picks up....
Nice combination of photo and "drawing".

Caroline! This is GREAT! I have sooo much problems with Painter IX... Guess it's because it's a trial program...For me. Maybe I should buy it... Heh heh...:)

You are so good at altering your photos. I love this effect. It is more than real...is that surreal? I don't know what the word is, but I like it.

I KNOW that I posted something here yesterday but it's gone! :(

This is really lovely...and so full of movement. I feel like the magnolia is moving in the breeze. Awesome!

Wandering Coyote - my big magnolia is flowering too now - they do have amazing flowers don't they? I'll be over to see your photo soon.

Sultry Painterwoman - I made the eraser rake by altering an ordinary one to one that erased by using the brush menus - I don't know if Essentails has those... but you can get the full one to play with for a month free of charge.

Kyknoord - thanks!

GG - and thank you too.

MerlinPrincesse - I found the trial program fine - it was the full version that you can download for a month and it was what convinced me to get the full one. Getting a decent tablet was the most useful extra.

Melba - thank you!

Reluctant Nomad - comments vanshing? Must have been in sympathy with my temporary disappearance - I hope you said something nice!

Andrea - thank you - I love that that is how you saw it.

Jocelyn - thank you - are you no longer Jody?
