    A monochromatic scene

    This started life as a practice piece for mountains using a palette knife - then it took off on it's own.

    Thanks Kenmo for the tree stencils.

    I tried to improve the composition by using the rule of thirds - not sure if it worked.

    I duplicated the sky and mountains and flipped them then adjusted opacity to make a reflection. I couldn't find a way to do this in ArtRage - transform doesn't flip - so I took it to PSP. Making a stencil from the layer and flipping that horizontally might have worked but I would have had to apply the paint.

    Anyone have ideas for this workaround?

    Nice textures. Placid tone. I suddenly feel sorta Chinese and am hearing flute music.

    Once you have it selected using the transform tool, right click and one of the choices is 'flip vertically'. Does this answer what you're talking about?

    Thanks DA and Steve.

    Mr.Akey, am I being dumb but I don't see those choices for the transform tool - I do see them for the stencil.

    Hi Enug,
    Having copied the layer you want to flip for the reflections;
    1: Select/click on 'Transform Layer Contents...' for the layer. This activates a bounding box around all elements on the selected layer.
    2: Right click anywhere inside the bounding box and from the popup menu select 'Flip Vertical'
    Click image for larger version.

    That's right. Thanks MarkW for the expansion. I was moving too fast.

    June, did that make more sense? Duplicatable?

    Yep, I was being dumb - I was trying to drag on the nodes of the bounding box - didn't occur to me to do the Rclick.

    DA, I know that's what you said - but............you needed to take me by the hand and tell me to click INSIDE the bounding box!

    Thanks Mark - in my case - 'a picture is worth a thousand words.' Interesting painting you're working on there - hippos?

    And Caesar thanks to you for the kind words.

    Hi Mr.Ploos - not trying to confuse anyone - except myself. This is what I wanted to do. It's two layers - one duplicated and flipped upside down. Bet you knew that already!
