For some odd reason; I like the less colorful one best.

Thanks again Blog Fodder. This is a photoshopped piece of an acrylic painting i created. Original size is 8" sq. and it's in blue,lime green and salmon.
It looks like i cropped most of it out then added the squares which were very orientalish and lost that somehow in the making. Then messed with the colours and a gold brush. Photoshop Brushes are the funnest things ever. It's actually images that can be done in any size and colour with just a click of the mouse.

I checked out Shellys art and wow, she is a very talented girl! I loved her subject matter as well; what a great imagination she has.

Thanks D. Edwards! I think what i did was after saving the first one i might have simply hit it with a few clicks of white Photoshop paint. I think i played with the water quite a bit then because it looks better in this version.

I really should try and keep track of what effects i use but never think of it. I vaguely remember going a few clicks too far with the white but there's an undo button so i just undid it back until i liked it.

This is something i have to ask my gson when he comes over because maybe there's a way to track the moves made and he just hasn't shown me yet!

Thanks for mentioning it.
