  2. Oh, Vi, I love this! Can you tell me how you did this? This is the effect I have been trying to achieve in some of my images (a woodblock print effect).

  10. Vi, the composition and color here is lovely. As if a soft fog had washed away all but the heart of the flowers. -Q

  11. Whew, Vi, if you can do something this beautiful when you’re “lopsided” imagine what you’ll produce when you’re back to normal! This really is beautiful!

  13. Hey Vi. This is really exquisite. You have become incredibly adept with your wacom. I think this is a very beautiful still life.

  17. Here is a copy, traveller, of what I wrote to Lori. As I told her, I don’t keep notes on exactly what I do when I’m working an image, guess I should, eh? This is pretty much what I did:
    I know that I started with the picture In Kodak’s Easy Share software. There, I spotlit the image and played a little with color balance and scene balance. Then I transferred it into Photoshop Elements where I played around with filters. I started with Posterize, Diffuse Glow, and Texturizer. I finished with Invert. I have found the latter doesn’t often work well, but in this case the imaage lent itself to the adjustment.It took me forever working as I am one eyed when it comes to close-up work. Hope this helps at least a little.
