Jerry...

Boy... You really enhanced the image with the barn and other scenery! You slicer and dicer, you!

RE: Didn't look all that good as watercolor
That happens... sometimes "sketchy" looks good, sometimes "watercolor" looks good, sometimes they all look bad! My wife occasionally asks, "Why would you ever want to muck up a perfectly good photograph in the first place?" (I guess because I can.)

Here's something else you can try...

Make a copy of the color layer (before you sketchy-ized it) and drag it to the top of the layer stack. Set the blend mode to "hard light" (or try other blend modes). Sometimes you get a pretty decent colored chalky/sketch effect. An example is attached...

Since I could get to Lisa's old truck pic, but not your extensions, the attachment only shows the effect on the truck.

Very cool Jerry,

I have to ask, only the far right hand corner has color in it? Is it just me?

I have the same attitude as Danny - the reason I muck with a picture... is because I can. I take so many pictures and only a few do I feel worthy of blowing up and framing. The rest... well, I can play with. Like Jeanisa once mentions, some of the worst pictures end up the best of watercolor and sketching. I'm going to try Danny's method tonight on a few pictures I took today. I'll post the results. Let me know if there are any photos I can post full res if you want to keep playing.

Lisa

Back when I was working on your picture for the challange. I used that technique and added some color. I almost submitted it but thought it was outside of the rules for the challange.

Hi Lisa

You are looking at Danny's version of the rusty truck pic. He was showing me a new technique he is working on. My black and white version is right above his. Looking forward to seeing more of your pics.

Doug started a new challenge catagory in picture art..Very cool..

Steve I like your colorized Lisa. Looks like you fit right in to this thread.

Jerry
