Run Deep Paint as a stand alone program. The interface with Photoshop is too iffy. Go to START, ALL PROGRAMS. Look in the RIGHT HEMISPHERE folder. Click DEEP PAINT to start program. When done working, save your file and reopen in Photoshop.

Good luck!

Photomaster, I too have spent a lot of time with Deep Paint, and have discovered what you have so fully described (Your post ought to have a "sticky" label slapped on it and placed in the *Tutorials* forum. It would be very helpful for those trying to use the app.) What I can't figure out is the relationship of the "Clone" tab in the upper left of the workspace, and the "Paint" tab right next to it. The instructions get you cloning under "Paint" exactly as you have stated; but what's the use of the "Clone" tab with its specially-loaded brushes? You can set out to clone more quickly under the "Clone" tab, to be sure, but the brushes generate an image more like the photo than a painting. If you want painterly strokes, you have to go to the "Paint" tab and tick "artistic", just as if you had begun under this tab. I suspect there's a feature or two under the "Clone" tab that I can't winkle out, but the instructions are no help. Have you uncovered any secrets hidden under the "Clone" tab?

Sorry I missed this post Oyster - was caught up in discussion.
The technique is not very difficult but it does not work on every picture...

Duplicate original layer, set blending mode to color dodge, and invert the colours.
The canvas should now be white (or mostly white) filter->blur ->gaussion blur, play around to get the colours in the right places.
You can stop at this point or
Do a very small gaussian blur on the original layer, then filter->styalise->find edges, edit ->fade find edges ->colour burn approx 30% - this should give a wetter look with darker edges in places (where the colour collects at the edge of the water)

Hi Foxie
the very first thing is to simplify the image , so depending on kind of a photo
I use selective blurs (sometime with warping ), sometimes despeckle filter
makes here a nice job too. So I repeat small steps until the result is ok.
Then I clone it on a new white layer and add a bit of texture.
Sometimes I add a bit of outline.
So simple it is
