Question watergarden

This would be my first photo art mini-challenge, i assume this is where you place it, lol, so much to this site, i always find myself geting lost in lots of learning and figuring out.
Using photoshop, i copied the original 2 times, the 1 I did find edges, on 2 I did did dry brush, erased some of two to bring out the lines underneath, mostly on trees, painted over the plant in water, and smuged the layer to give more of a flowing affect. 3 layer, airbrushed the tree branches and trunks white. 4 layer, airbrushed black around areas. 5 layer scanned in flowers, which i had hand painted in water colors. flatten, the erased some of pic and added white to the bottom. new layer, scanned in a piece of paper soaked in tea, overlay.

Thanks Phili1 for the nice comment..

This picture started out using Trimoons Sketch technique (using his pencil02 filter technique).. After completing the sketch I placed it above the original picture.. Using a variety of wet brushes I started to remove the portions of the sketch that I wanted the color to show through..It is trial and error adjusting opacities of brushes often..After I got the color that I wanted I added a white layer above and removed portions with the above technique to reveal the vignette..The clear water appears to be a combination of the sketch using pencil02 filter and the white layer overlay..

Hope this helps
Jerry

If I were you and you have a good printer I would buy Pictorico canvas paper and hang that on the wall.

I took my mystic submission which was from an oil painting system I am developing and used MIke F misty filter, I did the texture lighter then usual and at the end I added sandstone NO 2
and printed it just to see what the end results would be and it was awsome. I had several people at work want to buy it but I said its not mine to sell.

I think if you use that paper you will surprised.

Great sketch, Jerry, as usual. I like how the water turned out as a result of the layer blending.

Adao, that's a great look for this picture. Very well thought out and well done. I like how you have removed part of the background to simplify what is a too-busy picture. And welcome to the best site on the net!

Here I started with my last upload and layered over it a textured paper look from Andromeda Techtures. Made the texture a golden color and also tweaked the color of the picture beneath away from green somewhat and more towards golds and reds. The "Japanese" letters in the corner are really my initials PAS in Vivaldi font.

It isn't easy being (stuck with) green.

Chuck, nice subtle texture on the second one. As for brightness of the two, perhaps the truth lies somewhere in the middle?

There are two problems I found with this challenge picture: Too busy, and TOO GREEN! As you know, green is a really hard color to lighten, brighten, darken, etc. For example, when you saturate it, it loses detail and shadows because of all the yellow it contains. So green can be a real pain to work with. So I ended up changing the coloring a bit in my last two attempts...first making it bluer and adding other colors with color balance, and the second time shifting toward gold and red...helped with the overall tone.
