"Vanessa Peters Singer Songwriter" Corel - Plus

Singer Songwriter Vanessa Peters

I watched another "In The Spotlight" Hangout with Vanessa Peters hosted by Artists in the Plus on Google+. I missed the original Hangout but caught it on YouTube. Vanessa has been in the music business some ten years so she has paid her dues. She played a couple of her original tunes and sang. Wonderful style and singing voice. I gained permission from +Vanessa Peters and +John Voshell to use the following image.

Per usual I did a screen capture of the Event, between songs. I opened the capture in Corel PhotoPaint and cropped. I saved the resulting image, from Picasa 3.9 I opened with Corel PSP Pro X3 to resize for display and cleaned up the image a bit. Per my usual workflow on these images I applied the Digital Camera Noise Removal and Smart Photo fix. I adjusted color and sharpness and shadows.

Saving that iteration, again from Picasa I opened with Corel Painter Photo Essentials 4 and auto painted with the Detailed Watercolor, Rough Paper, full rectangle. I used the Soft Cloner brush to add back in some details. Saving that iteration I reopened with PhotoPaint.

There I used the plugin Filter Forge's Frames for a film frame and also touched up a couple of areas with the Touch up Tool. I saved that iteration for display after adding my signature.
