Creative Interpretations - Mallorca Cafe

I love these plaza and outdoor cafe scenes. Here's one from Spain and my watercolor version. Have fun! Enjoy

Swampy, I really like your watercolor. Is this from one of your tutorials?

Re: Creative Interpretations - Mallorca Cafe

No, Alan. If I can remember...

I worked kinda backwards on this trying some new things. Duped the background, ran find edges, desaturated and ran a buzz on the black and white. Put this on the top of the stack with blend mode set to Soft Light and Opacity at about 88%.

I then made another copy of the background, ran buzz again, set that as the history point and painted with a very splotchy brush in vital color areas. (See a pic of my paint layer below with the sketch layer turned on). Then I sandwiched a hue/sat adjustment layer between the black and white and the paint layer and ran the colors of the paint layer up.

I had a lot of white areas, so I duplicated the original again, placed it under the paint layer and reduced the opacity to about 25%. This filled in the otherwise white canvas with some color that gave a soft "underpainted" look.

Hope that helps. :-)

Photoshop.. If you don't have Buzz, you can probably use the Noise/dust&scratches filter to muck up and simplify the photo.

It's probably the thoughts of food that attract us to these outdoor cafe pics, Steve. LOL

Some buzz and fine edges followed by painting with a watercolor brush.
