This AOP was on the old and long gone DAP forum and was created by Honzakov. It has been asked for a few times the last couple of years so I have now taken the liberty of uploading to the café to make it more easy to find. I suppose Honzakov (who has not been present in years) won’t mind.
I don’t remember who created these two fine AOPs since they didn’t come with any informative help files. They were originally published in the old and long gone forum and the creator seems to have left us. But I suppose he or she doesn’t mind them being distributed one more time.
In the beginning this AOP seemed only suited for forest paintings and was therefore named Deep Forest. It was primarily meant for paintings with large, rough strokes but in the end I also made a version with thinner strokes. It now has several palettes and is hopefully also usable for other motives than trees.
Gruppe_wc was created by Vitaly (also known as Piker77). I have no blurb’ to post along with this AOP. I can say it is one of my favourite AOPs, I particularly like Palette #8 on water scenes as seen in the example on the left. FWIW, the sample was run at defaults with no additional processing.
My thanks to Vitaly for creating this AOP and for giving me permission to upload it to the Cafe.

“A very versatile AOP, just needing a bit of contrast work in post processing”
“The early stages can give interesting results. (strokes 2000 to 5000).
If you don’t mind letting it run for 50-60k strokes, you can remove the dry reveal.”
Here’s the download file: Automatic
AOP created by Mary Warner and uploaded to the Cafe with her permission.
“This AOP is a fun attempt at imitating simple oil brush strokes and duplicating the colors in the underlying photo. There is no effort to mimic any known painter’s style. Works well with landscapes, animals, flowers and some portraits. Default/recommended settings are 50%/50% Expressive / Realistic, 90% Wet, 50%/50% Faithful / Impress, 100% Real. Experiment with the Wet / Dry setting for a slightly different look. Dry reveal does not run unless you create a mask. Use your mouse to bring out more detail.”
“There are 3 palettes which all use virtually the same colors. However, each has a different “brush” texture. Experiment to see which one works best on a particular painting. “Paper” canvas is used by default; try “oil” or a custom canvas for interesting variations.”

Back in October 2009, Mary Warner posted this AOP. Unfortunately, the files were in the old forum and the links no longer work. Mary has been quite busy and hasn’t been able to edit her original post. As we can only edit our own posts, I’ve decided to upload my copies so any who would like to download this AOP can do so.
The file size prevents me from uploading the AOP into the Cafe. So instead, I’ve placed them on my account at Mediafire
The AOP files are in two parts:
The AOP itself which goes into the objectpack directory
The Help files which go into the Help directory
DreamyWatercolors AOP was created by Mary Warner and was posted in the old forum. Unfortunately, that is gone. The good news is Mary has agreed to allow me to upload my copy so others can enjoy her creativity.
Please note that the version I have did not include an image so I’ve taken the liberty to add one to the archive.
The first image on the left is one of mine and was ran using default settings at 6 meg resolution. I find if you increase the outline setting one or two notches, you get a bit more definition as can be seen in the second image. Also I’ll run this AOP usually at 10,000 strokes or better. All my personal tastes of course. As they say, YMMV
