    I really liked one of the earlier blends that Mike did, so I asked him to do one of his 2'X2' wood mounted, encaustic wax finished pictures for me.
    These things have to be seen to be believed

    Here is a photo of the picture hanging in my condo.

    Hi Keith,

    It looks great on your wall. Thanks for the kind words and for sharing the picture. I'm glad that I found this forum as well. I have and continue to also learn from others here. It is a great place to share and learn.

    And, don't forget to give the waxed piece a gentle buffing once in a while. At least for the first couple of months.
    And thanks again for your support.

    cheers
    Mike

    It's a good shot. That sky looks very like the ones painted by the Group of Seven in Canada (worth googling ) - lovely abstract clouds

    Lawren Harris to be exact. I live next door to the McMichael Gallery in Woodbridge! A place to go for inspiration. Also, check out Emily Carr....

    That's a wonderful place to live - you can pop into the gallery at any time, and there is so much to see. We are in Oakville and have to go a bit further.
    But those artists were magnificent, and I'm not sure if the rest of the world knows much about them

    Really nice landscape - that is a subtle blend, but I think I've got it
    But I prefer it when you turn up the juice! How about doing a vertical with trees. That rock image has so much potential

    I like subtle most of the time. The blend in the hill is not subtle but in the sky it is way tones down.

    Uwe - the trouble is, you have done it so well in the lower half of the picture - I can't tell the difference the blend makes. Can you post the original image?

    This one is also pretty cool. I wonder if you blurred the background on the layer with the woman, just to keep the focus on her.

    I only upsized to 6MP (Plastic Bullet creates small files).

    >I wonder if you blurred the background on the layer with the woman, just to keep the focus on her.

    Not much. But also Plastic Bullet does some blur.

    My first ever blends. First one went a little crazy but I feel it helps the mood of the shot:



    This one was fun to do:



    Both were shot with a 300mm F3.2 C-mount lens btw.

    Well, I was working on an image tonight and it wasn”t quite working, so I went another direction. I threw away some layers and this image started to come to life.
