Tutorial: Watercolor, Sarah Swartzie method II (link)

This is done with psp 7 (Photoshop) but you could probably come close with earlier versions brushes

lol When I first noted the title of the thread it piqued my interest. I thought "a toilet tutorial - now this I have to see!" - doh!!

Still I think I prefer the outcome of this to the alternative.

Need help with tutorial- brushing picture back in

Hi Everyone,

Sarah was so wonderful to take the time to put together a tutorial about her watercolor style. I am stumbling with it.
Please help me determine where I am going astray...

After creating a mask layer the next step is: "Choose a watercolor brush and paint the picture back in."

My brush is having no effect.

If I make the "angled strokes copy layer" active, (which is filled with white) I can paint black on it

However, when I make the mask active- absolutely nothing is happening. I see my brush shape outline moving with no effect.

What did I miss this time?

Thanks in advance!
Ron

Ron im not sure what is wrong. Do you have the filled layer active and have clicked on the mask part of it? You should have your tools set on the brush and then a black and a white swatch should show. You want to use the black.
Check that your settings all look like this picture. The layers palette here is pretty abreviated because i whipped this up just to show the filled layer and mask


LOL Mike, if I had thought of that I would have used a toilet for the photo

Sarah your student is beaming!

Hi Sarah and Everyone,

I finally managed to use the mask layer. Don't even want to admit what I was doing wrong. Suffice it to say that sometimes I have to really wonder about myself!

Thanks again Sarah for taking the time to put the lesson together and then following up with my difficulty. Now I'm even more addicted to PS and editing.

Here's a hug and pat on the back to ya! The print looks fabulous.
Anyway, please take a look at my first effort with Sarah's tutorial.

Cheers!
Ron

Ron I wont admit either to how long it took me to figure out layer masks. Your Jay looks good. This method can give you, as you did, other media looks than WC depending on brushes and textures.

And dont forget to play with layer modes and opacities too

Very nice creation, Ron.

So nice that I hope you don't mind that I've uploaded a copy of it as an attached file to this post. That way when you (someday) revise your pBase gallery (and the link you posted no longer works), the image will be preserved (as an attachment here) for others to appreciate for years to come.

Some sites are OK with pBASE URLs. We prefer attachments for the reason above.

Excellent results. Hope to see more.

Sarah:

Thanks VERY MUCH for crafting this tutorial and sharing it with us. Couldn't wait to try it on Photo-based Art Mini-challenge #88.

Here's my result.

I like this method a LOT!

~Danny~


(Ron: In case you're wondering, in this post I'm linking to an image already uploaded to RetouchPRO. It ain't goin' anywhere!)

Sarah has created a monster!

Hi Everyone,

My work kept me late today. Couldn't wait to get home to my desk and try my hand at another photo using Sarah's methods.
I am leaning towards a mixed media look. However, the tutorial steps could lead one anywhere- depending on which filters used and layer style, opacity, etc.

Big thanks again to Sarah.

Dave, thanks for making an attachment of the blue jay. Any sharing I can do is great.

Here is tonights effort....

Cheers,
Ron
