The Painter's View
This is a photo of a very popular place for painter in the Botanical Gardens in Santa Barbara, CA. I started off with a Watercolor and after many other FX, I ended up here. The Watercolor is one of the Buzz Stacks. After that I lost track but I know there is angled strokes, a guassian blur and a canvas background in there somewhere. Lots and lots of burn/dodge and level/curves adjustments.

I like both; however, I am a filter/effect addict! So, I like the changed version the best!

Very nice! Question:

Have you (or anyone) ever tried to print something like this on an "art" type paper? (As opposed to printing on photo paper) If it could be printed on a heavily textured paper it would look wonderful - I think.

Thanks, Eric

Thanks so much Donna, Dennis, Nancy & Eric...was this ever a surpise :)

Donna..You are MY inspiration...I'm in awe of your work :)

Eric..I've not done much printing but hear that the "art" paper works really well. I'll have to try it sometime.

Thanks so much Adi. The Buzz Stacks are part of the Buzz Plugin. Here's a link to some application techniques with Buzz.
