Waterwheel

This is a picture that I took on our local college campus. Artwork was done using Swampy's line art tutorial.

Re: Waterwheel

Very nice pic... they just don't make 'em like they used too.

On my interpretation using Photoshop I...
* Enlarged using Image > Image Size
* Applied Smart Blur (Normal) to simplify the detail a bit
* Applied Dry Brush to rough up things up some
* Used the Smudge tool to soften some of the edges
* Duplicated the Background, dragged duplicated layer to top of layer stack and applied Impressionist > Crayon > Short choppy strokes to add some texture; set layer blend mode to Multiply and lowered opacity
* Duplicated the Background again, dragged duplicated layer to top of layer stack and added Hide All layer mask. Air brushed white mask in areas where I wanted to restore a little detail, like around the vertical streams of water
* Image > Adjustments > Saturation - increase saturation setting to boost the colors a bit

Re: Waterwheel

I like that picture Klautt.

Here are 2 attempts at watercolor

I did a light application of Buzz simplifier 1 to remove some of the detail
Next came two Pencil Pixel actions merged one over the other and finally a couple of different blending modes

Re: Waterwheel

I'm not sure how I square this with my primary interest in watercolor (photo-art watercolor, that is)... but recently since I got the Pencil Pixel actions I'm facinated by the LeRoy Neiman style.

That style probably doesn't fit with a landscape picture like this ...but I just hadda try.

The first picture has a slight Buzz ( as I intend to have a little after 5) and one of the Neiman actions from Pencil Pixels.

The second picture starts with the same Buzz but prior to the Neiman action I ran Virtual Painter 4 with a custom Airbrush effect. The thing about several of the VP4 effects is that they generate some very bright colors and can distort the subject if you choose. I thought that was somewhat Neiman-ish

Regards
Bob Mc
