"Daria Musk Singer Songwriter" Corel Painter Photo Essentials 4 - Plus

Singer Songwriter Daria Musk and Ram

I was watching a Live Google+ Hangout on YouTube last night and I did a screen capture. Here is Singer Songwriter Daria Musk and her producer, fellow performer Ram Rich. Daria's website is at The hangout was sponsored by Artists in the Plus on Google+ with host John Voshell.

She is a pioneer in bringing together musicians from all around the world on G+. Absolutely enthusiastic and a charmer, her performances are just plain fun to watch. I gained permission from her and John to create this image and post it here, for which I am grateful.

I grabbed the screen capture and then from Picasa 3.9 I opened with Corel PSP Pro X3. There I resized the image for display size. I applied the Digital Camera Noise Removal tool and increased the saturation with the Vibrancy tool. I saved that iteration.

Next I opened it with Corel Painter Essentials 4. Here I auto painted using the Detailed Watercolor settings, Rough Paper. I added back in details with the Soft Cloner brush.

Saving that, I reopened with PSP and added the Polaroid frame and a black border.
