Watercolor illustration.

Some Retinex, Mr. Contrast, Impressionist, and Paint Engine play. Oh yes, NIK's free Colorfx warmth filter too.

lk,

i like that 'mist' sort of effect in the foreground. i also find the fade to black and white interesting.

Used to be a great place to go fishing until they built all the condos along the river.

Anyway here's my stab.

steve,

an interesting effect. dont need the whole work flow, but some idea of how you achieved this?

also, an interesting choice of flow lines, especially in the water? why the contrasting flow lines there? i like the light blue as it tends to follow the flow of the water, but why the horizontal in the dark blue?

Thanks Craig.

A combination thing.....Buzz, Gertrudis, and Impressionist. Used pencil strokes in Impressionist on the top layer and the result is what you see. I just kinda liked the maybe offbeat look.
