Really want to watercolor

I don't know why I have such a time with Watercolor. What or How is this? I'm not sure I backed off the watercolor too much?





thanks Michelle

Michelle, I haven't tried the watercolor much so really can't say if it is what or how. But I do think the effect is adorable. The crop is perfect with it.

I have never tried the watercolor but someone will be along soon to help you. Did you do a search for watercolor tuts?

Michelle,

I too have yet to do a watercolor. I do like the effect, though. When you view the larger version of your picture it does look as if it were "painted" on canvas.

Hamish,

Your watercolor looks great. I especially like the other one in your gallery; the old house with the brown frame.

Please post your tutorial. I would love to try it.

JuliaM

Lightbulb Here is a quick 'n dirty.

Hi Michelle,

Here is a really fast attempt. This picture is not ideal for the watercolor effect as is. You really need clean lines and simple blocks of color. Think hot air balloons against a blue sky. Having said that here is what I have got for you.

It should be on my website in a few minutes:

If you want the procedure, just post back.

Cheers,

Bob

Glad you liked the water colour.
Make a dupe working on the dupe, smudge the sharp areas, and background with a soft brush at opac
ity50%,try stroking like you are painting.
Run a smart blur filter settings3 to 15 top,and 20 to50bottom.
Make a new layer above this and fill with white,.Set the blend mode to Vivid Light.
Use a soft brush set opacities bewteen 1% and 30%,stroke on top of white, layer,with 50% grey.The more you go over the white the more water colour effect you get. Hamish
