Palms may be able to tell us about this little village, as it looks very UK.

Outstanding photo! It's truly a joy to work with...and some fine interpretations already. Mine is a watercolor experiment painted in photoshop.

Re: Creative Interpretations - Houses in a Row

Alan, you are the master of watercolor!

So, what brush did you use? It's so nice and "washy".

There are so many brushes and plugins and software that say "watercolor" that don't come close to looking like it. I am happy to finally see one that REALLY looks like a "done from scratch" watercolor. Just great Alan! At least two thumbs up on this one.

Looks like you would get your fingers wet if you touched it.

Re: Creative Interpretations - Houses in a Row

I'm with you, Steve - you have to wonder sometimes if the people who produce some of these 'watercolor' tools have ever actually seen a watercolor.

Alan, you really nailed it. I'd love to know how you did it.

Mine's Buzz and Impressionist.

Re: Creative Interpretations - Houses in a Row

Alcar - I don't want to know how you do it, because I still wouldn't be able to mimic it, but I love it and agree that it looks really water-colored.

Mine's a mix of many things --

Re: Creative Interpretations - Houses in a Row

This is my first attempt at posting an image here, I am trying to get a feel of
how it's done and if I do it wrong please let me know.....

Some color inversion done by a pseudo infra-red .
