    @Whitney-Simms also for non-destructive changes once selection is made LAYER - NEW ADJUSTMENT LAYER - Hue/Saturation

    and just slide the colour bar back and forth to get the colour and saturation values you want.

    @Whitney-Simms happy to help. Also a good way to select for a mask is from the menu at the top

    @Whitney-Simms Use SELECT colour Range then IMAGE - ADJUSTMENTS replace colour. Use the result box to set your base colour.

    You can mask further with quickmask and use a brush or adjust the fuzziness. And select has commands like choose similar, expand smooth and feather.

    QUICKMASK for using brushes is SHIFT and Q or SELECT - Edit in quickmask mode. Remember to set the brush to NORMAL in quickmask mode.

  • RE: Boy licking a shop window WIP

    The cakes are very appetizing! I think the flesh pressed against the window is working and the signage looks ok to me. My only critique is that his eyes aren't directly looking at the cakes but more above them which makes me wonder if there is something even more delicious that we can't see!

  • RE: Butterfly race WIP

    I did a quick line and wash of part of the detail of my final drawing to see how it would look. I’m using a dip pen which is new to me, and I can see some things in the drawing and inking that I need to change but in general, I like the look.

  • RE: Making Time for Creativity--Growing Gills work through

    I found the chapter interesting because I'm coming at it from the other side -- I'm the one always trying to get people to volunteer their time for various church needs and am increasingly aware of how overcommitted people are and increasingly feeling guilty about having to ask for one more thing from them. I have not yet figured out how to balance respecting people's need for time to nurture their own interests and spend time with their family, and my church's need (and the need of communities in general) for volunteers. This chapter describes not only our personal struggles but our societal struggle right now as people's time is more and more fragmented, and demands on families' time is much greater than it used to be. There is no single cause for that (and I've read a lot about it lately) which also means there is no single solution. I think the book's advice on setting a dollar sign on your time is helpful not only personally but might be helpful for the organizations asking for people's time, making sure that the stuff we ask people to volunteer for is actually important to do and not something we are doing because "that's what we've always done."

  • RE: Who is this Anna Daviscourt person?

    I'm very excited that you will be teaching -- I loved your first SVS video. I have been a member of SVS for about two years and am older than most here. I am 61 and an amateur with no plans of doing this professionally but I love looking at everyone's work, learning from them, and talking about the creative process (which cuts across disciplines). I have three children nearly all grown (one is still in college), live in a rural area of western NY where coyotes howl at night, bears sometimes knock over bird feeders, and spring doesn't arrive until May. Art keeps me sane during winter's dawdling exit. I look forward to your course (or, I hope, courses?)

  • RE: Little Heroes Book under IP dispute

    @davidhohn yes it's good to see the print. I remembered the story breaking years ago and it taking forever to go through court. One of the reasons I think copyright could do with an update is concluding cases quicker. Do you think making work that is limited editions or original art can have an effect on the outcome, if it goes to court?
