I mean in PSCS6 that I use, there is additional new mixer brushes, in my case - Airbrushes.

I am still trying to get your nice water color effect. How long will it take me to get it, I have no idea. Actually I thought you were using Corel Painter.

Well I am going to download this same image, and try. Wonder what texture to use ?

Chance, thank you for your kind comments. Glad that you like my watercolor technique, it pretty simple like I sad before - just outline different pre-prepared layers. For example: saturate and unsharp you background then outline it in empty layer, then do something else with the copy of background and outline it in empty layer then blend empty layers and voila ..
I believe it learned rather quickly and soon we able to see you works in watercolor... And about texture - Ι believe that is no matter, just use some, anyway I try to make it weaker.

Thanks for your reply, it clarified a lot of things. I did not get the CS6 yet, I still used CS5 which has mixer brushes, airbrushing option, Mixer presets, as well as the Oil Preset from Pixel Blender. Anyway, I will be getting CS6 shortly, usually I only upgrade every other version.
I tried my best to emulate your style, with not much luck. In one version, the river took 2 days, and it was running backwards .... arrrgh.. lol.
Am posting two versions of it. Will keeping trying to learn your glorious style, well worth learning.

Newbie Re: A scenic shot

Used FX Photo Studio Pro, then a copy of that along with the original in photoshop and a mask to paint a tiny bit of detail back in and added texture.
