Re: Garden Buddahs - Be Creative

Cool stuff folks and thanks for the play Swampy. Thought I would take Phyllis's Line-art idea (not copying her technique, but just her look) for this watercolor. I didn't use Overlay either; used GIMP's Value layer property. Also did some additional enhancements using AAA Fotofix and Color Blur filters.

Here's the full rendering.

Ikroll, That color blur filter adds just the right touch to your version. Nice.
