Dancing Dogwood, take 2

dancing dogwood, palette knife filter from Photoshop

Welcome to the modern world. If you can play with a painting in Photoshop, why not? I applied the palette knife filter to my gouache painting (that painting did have a bit of watercolor in the background, too, by the way). I then un-applied the filter to the spot that had my signature.

Interesting although I like the original better. I find this one too "smooth", it seems to have less spirit in it.

Leora says

Thanks for being honest. I agree. The original had my nervous energy from yesterday, and this one is covering all that up.

Baila says

I wish you could post the pictures side-by-side so I can really compare them.

You paint really quickly, don't you?

Do you sell your paintings?

phyllis says

that is so darn cool. i like both of them.

Leora says

Baila, I'm working on created cards and what's called: Giclee, so I can sell professional prints. But I enjoy painting itself much more than researching printing. I don't want to sell low-quality prints. But I don't want the product to be so expensive that almost no one can afford it, either.

Phyllis, glad you like 'em!
