Re: Creative Interpretations - In the Plaza

Hi Swampy your stamp tool watercolor is really nice.
I gave this a different kind of look.

Cathy, that soft "blurry" look goes well with the heavy saturation.

Re: Creative Interpretations - In the Plaza

Yet again a nice photo Swampy

I must go over your pattern stamp tool tutorial again, you get some great rendiitions from it but i dont think to use it ! ! !

Cathy i like the darker feel to yours

Steve maybe the were all camera shy ? nice style you have got lately, is it still from psp?

Alcar I Love it ( yep that simple)

I went down the watercolour road, one with texture one without ( couldnt make my mind up again )

Re: Creative Interpretations - In the Plaza

Steve, another nice one from you. There is a man way in the background to the right of that big tall red door at center left, but that was my first thought too. Must have been early morning.

Alan, that is a beautiful watercolor! What software?

Palms, nice soft renditions. I use a lot of texture with my brushes when I use the Pattern Stamp Tool. Of course you pick the saved pattern source to paint from, but I go to the brushes palette an add texture change other settings (scatter, flows etc.) for brushes. My problem is, I often forget what I did and don't save the brush as a preset. Then when I do, I forget what I named that cool brush...sigh.

Swampy, my image followed your Art 101 tute by simplifying the image, followed by Dry Brush but then painting the image onto a white canvas in Photoshop.

Re: Creative Interpretations - In the Plaza

Thanks, Alan. You did a fabulous job. Did you use the Patern Stamp or History brush to paint? It's got all the great "blotches" of a water color.
