My Attempt with Painter IX.1

This is my attempt at this photo - a sort of "line and wash" watercolor. This is my first attempt here, so I hope the post works.

May be your first time out, Tom, but your version is lovely. How did you get the "wash" look?

Very much like this one Tom. Did you hand trace the lines, or use a filter for this? If filter, what filter? This is the look that I would like to achieve (but with filters of course since I'm lazy).

From a Brooklynite

You're right, it does look like it could be in Brooklyn. It looks like Park Slope, where I used to live. Now I live in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. I decided to make your summer Brooklyn half Park Slope, and my bridge half Williamsburg. I suppose it's what Williamsburg would look like if all the hipsters would grow up, put down their guitars, spray paint, and rock hair, and buy dockers.

First, I made a duplicate layer of the original and then added a photo of the Williamsburg Bridge on a layer below that. I used a layer mask and just painted in B&W to blend the 2 layers. Then I adjusted the curves on both layers to match, since my bridge photo was taken in the February rain. Since there is a weird glow in summer in Brooklyn (must be because of Radiac) I made a 50% gray fill layer and applied a lense flare filter to that. Then I used levels and layer opacity to settle the lense flare layer into the image.

Quick and simple. Edges > cutout > fidling with levels and whatnot.

One-minute-filter-playaround.
I'll try to translate the filter i've used from Swedish PS.
I used four filter from filter-gallery:
-glas
-texturize
-pastelchalk
-sprayed stroke

Hope that translation make any sence.

Finally I saturated whole picture.

TThurston,

I'm w/lazze_gurra. I'm making a poster and that technique would fit right in to what I had in mind. BTW, how do you like Corel Painter IX.1?

Painter IX.1 Technique

Several have asked how I did my version. I'm sorry, it's not filters but lots of work by hand in Painter IX.1 (which I like very much). The ink lines are all freely traced by hand using Painter's Scratchboard brush. The color wash is on a separate layer beneath the ink layer, mostly using a Digital Watercolor wash brush with varying levels of diffusion. It actually didn't take all that long for most of the picture. The only real time-consuming part was the all foliage. In retrospect, I think put in too much time there, and the picture would be better with if the foliage was not quite so busy.

-Tom

Yup; still can't beat an hand drawing. I know you spent a lot of time and the result was excellent. I'm the lazy man of this thread (well, Craig and I are competing for the title anyway) .
