Illustration Friday - wisdom


In the language of flowers, iris means faith and wisdom.

Something different for me. Here are two versions of my photo of iris flowers in my garden enhanced with artistic effects in Paintshop Pro.

The first is in coloured pencil.

The second is coloured edges.

Hello Kay,
I enjoyed your work, especially the green and violet contrasts. I'll be looking for your future work. :-)

Kay, you had a great imagination showing two different perspectives of the same picture. Well done.

Great applications of the effects. The second one looks like a van Gogh with its strong colours.

Delicious - your second option looks like stained glass - beautifully luminous and Tiffany-like.

Those are absolutely exquisite--both of them! I really wish I could figure out how to get photoshop to do what I want, but I don't think I'll ever come up with something this gorgeous!

Thanks, everybody, for your nice comments and fullsome but undeserved praise! Mahlu002, I didn't use photoshop, I used PaintShopPro. It has lots of paint effects and all you do is click, its that easy! Normally I use it to manipulate designs for embroidery. (You can get free downloads of trial versions on the internet or on PC magazine cover CDS).

Love the first one. The second is a bit too harsh for me, although the colours are stunning. :-)
