Re: Watercolor Wannabe

Nice, MrWho. Mind telling us how you did it? Steps, software, filters?

Re: Watercolor Wannabe

I guess it couldn't hurt I found it in a book called "Photoshop Photo Effects Cookbook" by Tim Shelbourne. I used a PDF from a section of the book that deals with watercolor (it's on this site somewhere). I know I messed up in a few places (the sky, and the rock formations are too clean to be watercolor) but I'm satisfied

Re: Watercolor Wannabe

Love the original and love the watercolor effect. Did you take the picture? That area of Arizona/Utah is one of my favorite haunts.

Tim Shelbourne's stuff is really good, don't you agree?

Re: Watercolor Wannabe

I wish I could take pictures that quality (well, the quality of the original higher-res one, anyways)... I've been to Utah and (I think) Arizona, and I might have some semi-decent pics. Tim's stuff is really good, I'll have to pick up one of his books sometime.

Re: Watercolor Wannabe

BEAUTIFUL photo! I had to take a try at doing a watercolor.

Salt and pepper filter, Slight buzz, VP gourche, VP airbrush, VP watercolor.

I think I like yours better, though.

Re: Watercolor Wannabe

Hey MrWho,

Once I saw your version of this wonderful image I just had to have a try at creating my version of an watercolor effect using it.

Hope ya'll enjoy.
