This was made with a Photoshop action I decided to try out. It was a bit complicated to set up, and I haven't learned all the tweaks, but I rather like the results.

this is so subtle Cindy.  I LIKE it!   The treatment, the pastel colours and even the Squirrel's pose create a peaceful, harmonious and interesting image that should only be show 30" x 20" and above.


I'd say the effort you put in has paid dividends, and was probably enjoyable.  Either way, Wow!
Make your life spectacular!

Thanks Dave.  The "effort" was mostly figuring out how to get the "action" to work in Photoshop. I think there a lot more tweaks that can be applied once you get the basic image- will be experimenting.

This is a lovely ‘experimental’ result, Cynthia,

I’ve not used Ps Actions, but understand them to be a sequence of recorded functions. It will be interesting to see what you produce, as you work thru the process, dissecting and modifying the various parts. What a great 1st result!

I love this!   Such a soft and dreamy washed, watercolour effect, very oriental feel to the soft brushwork and the gentle colour palette.  A click really brings this to life!  

I agree with Dave, print it large!

A beauty, Cindy.  Would love to see more done in this style.  :)

Beautiful artistic vision, Cindy. The perfect image for placement on that wonderful textured background. Excellent.

Wow, very nice. Amazing, how you created the paint like mood, even the paper texture. Nicely done Cindy!
This is all new to me.
