Starting a thread where we can submit and discuss our creative efforts.

Here is a couple of paintings from a series of urban landscapes I am working on, using Camille AOP (my favourite).

Here is something I made this week. It was taken at the Museum of Flight in Seattle. I used my own custom AOP called AlphaB. The reason for the name will be obvious if you look at the image full size.

Sheeesh! I had to reduce this image and save it compressed more than is good for it. This is NOT a good thing.
Hopefully it can be changed?

Okay, I probably should not complain about the size limit but I wanted people to be able to see the brushes used in this image.
Next time I'll just make it smaller and not complain.
All photos I use are my photos unless otherwise noted in the post.

Rocambole, I really like the second one with the fallen leaves.

anecessaryevil .. Nicely done. Looks like an interesting AOP. Was there a dry reveal stage? Perhaps you could post just a full-size or enlarged small portion of the painting to let us see the detail.

And here's my contribution. Done with a watercolor AOP and then layered several times in Photoshop.

You are getting really good in this since the forum went away!

Your zebra is a first class image. Very well done!

You asked about a dry reveal on the AlphaB AOP. I have been putting the dry reveal is every aop I have played with creating since the dry reveal is about the first thing I vary when processing an image. In the image I posted I kept the dry reveal fairly light.

This one might fit better.
The original image is from The Commons area of Flickr which are old photos in the public domain.
I used the Benson AOP on this, saved as a .psd file and made the painted layer 12% transparent.

I used Flickr's tools for the borders and type.
I fiddled with the controls in Benson but I can't remember what I did.

Both beauties, Roc. You've always had much greater success with the Camile AOP than I. (said in an envious voice <smile>)

Thank you! Speaking of success I can reveal that during the last few months I have sold nine paintings out of fifteen. Six during a month's exhibition in an art gallery and three of the remaining ones in a furniture shop, all printed on 40x60 cm canvas and then varnished. So it seems people like Camille paintings.

Oh that is wonderful, Mary. Was the watercolour AOP one of your creations or one that was previously posted over at DAP Cafe?

@anecessaryevil: The second - Painting the Past - appeals to me more than the first. Always liked the tone a painting takes on using the Benson AOP. Have you tried the Bensoncez AOP? I prefer the brushstrokes use din it over the original Benson.

Here are two that I've done recently:
