me too......but

I got mine too, but I am unable to work the tutorial in such a way as to get the beautiful watercolor images that Trimoon has posted. I am now trying yet another image...I have already tried on 4 different images with mixed results.....but none of them look like water colors.

Any hints?? Any help???

Cricket,

I was able to get a pretty decent watercolor version of the Little Blue Heron image that came with the CD. Then I tried one of my own images and it doesn't look nearly as nice. I don't know if it's the image I chose or if I'm doing something wrong. I think it's going to take me a lot more practice before I can create the images that Trimoon does. Unfortunately, I don't have much free time on my hands right now.

I guess that's the long way of saying I don't have any great advice for you - but you're not alone in your repeated attempts to get a good watercolor!! If you want to post one of your "failed attempts", I might be able to suggest something, but I can't promise anything.

Here's one of my "questionable" attempts.

Thanks. I think you did a wonderful job. Even when I do an image, it's hard for me to be consistent. I can do the same iage several times, but I have not the patience nor the discipline to stay the course. I want to always wander and see what else I can come up with. The tutorial was always meant to give direction and to teach the techniques that I use. I've noticed several people have been able to do the blue heron and have been able to come up with almost the exact look as I did and I don't know how they do it. I tend to stray too much.

Thanks for the feedback Steve. I think the background is what I like the least in this image. I've seen some people that have just created a hint of color - kind of like a "fog" for the background. Perhaps that would work better for this image.

My other problem is that I almost never like anything I've created at the time I declare it done. Looking at this image a day after I finished it, I guess it doesn't look too bad.

I know what you mean about not being consistent. I never can be either!

Jeaniesa, I think the owl came out great! Much better then my attemps at Helga. I'm not giving up though. The tutorial is great. It's me that needs the work.

Thanks for the nice comments Bob. I think (like Steve said), the technique is meant to be flexible - but that usually means it takes practice to really learn it. Just wish I had more time to play!

If it's you that needs the work, perhaps you should attempt a self-portrait?

Jeanie
