    Hinket's Experiments Thread - Update-May 21, 2011

    I thought I’d do my experiments all in this thread.
    I installed PSE 8 for the Mac the day before AR3 came out
    so I’m learning stuff in that program also.

    PSE6 which came with my graphics tablet,
    continually crashed, so I mostly learned to trash Pref.plists,
    and Repair installations, with it!

    This first was a simple play with the Roller presets and Tria colours.
    Then I used it to create a colour palette using pixelate (Sweedie’s method).
    As the Flaming Pear Freebies plug-in set AR3 crashing,
    I figured I would try that out in PSE8 as well.

    And the result is the second one.

    Thanks, Evart,

    The first is not much of a painting, but I liked the colours I used, so I turned it into a colour palette and experimented with that.

    And hey, I found your site on ImageKind and bookmarked it.

    Hey D. Akey, Thank you.

    The "like colored glass" stirred my memory, of a magical day last September, when the late afternoon sun hit the glass-topped coffee table and glass bowl holding several coloured glass
    fishing net floats, various forms of seashells, and silvery-coated reflective stones on the bottom with a sapphire blue glass plate on top.

    Everything seemed to be reflected on the table top and back into the terrarium, including the gold surround of the pellet stove door, the fish-shaped green pottery ashtray on the table, and the red cat blanket on the sofa.

    And all 3 sets of batteries for my camera were dead!
    So I sat on the floor, just taking it all in,
    knowing the sun would never quite hit those same angles again.

    And just maybe that's what I was trying to create a semblance of.

    Hey, Coops.
    Thanks,
    I like experimenting, but I never remember
    afterwards exactly what steps I took,
    so this time I made notes for myself.

    A SWIM IN THE GLOOP STREAM -Variations on a Theme

    The first painting was totally done in AR3 using the gloop pen. I figured it would be a good one for experimenting on with PSE8 filters and FX.

    Okay, so if most of you are experienced users of Photoshop, please excuse me, but this is all new to me!

    Second one is with paint daubs -sparkle.
