Re: Creative Interpretations - Spanish Fishing Vil

The workflow for my last submission in this thread, as best as I can remember: (1) simplify with buzz; (2) new white layer and mask; (3) paint image on white layer with watercolor brush and make ragged border with textured brush; (4) duplicate simplified layer, add impressionist plugin (damp translucent style modified): (5) use hide all mask to spot paint watercolor texture here and there and soften hard lines; (6) add hue/saturation layer and use mask to increase color here and there; (7) flatten layers and dupe; (8) apply sketch>photocopy (foreground color must be black) and change mode to color burn; (9) spot paint using low opacity to deepen and sharpen facets of building and “pooling” of watercolor strokes; (10) sharpen.

Re: Creative Interpretations - Spanish Fishing Vil

Wonderful workflow, Alan, Thank you so much! I'll have to remember the masking out of some paint strokes. I'm assuming that is how you got so much white (like in the buildings).

Swampy, I did forget that I may have added a levels adjustment layer and used the white setting point to add white to the buildings. This often has the side benefit of changing the overall color characteristics of the image. Alan

Gotcha, Alan. It's easy to think in terms of adding brush strokes, but not intuitive to remove them. LOL

Re: Creative Interpretations - Spanish Fishing Vil

Nice idea Swampy
All PS stuff used here.
1 duped
2 slight Gaussian blur to BG
3 Dry brush to BG
4 Smart blur to BG
5 Desat dupe
6 Smart blur dupe (edges only)
7 Invert dupe
8 blend mode dupe to multiply and fade opacity and diffuse aniso to soften.
9 add new layer between BG and dupe and fill with white
10 add mask to white layer and fill with black
11 choose spatter brush and paint with white on mask
12 Levels AL for overall adjustment.

Sorry Palms no cut out used at all this time.


Peter

Re: Creative Interpretations - Spanish Fishing Vil

Such a beautiful image, Swampy! So many lovely variations made me want to try some of the suggestions -- I used a color sketch layer, some dry brush, many color range layers, etc. etc.

Re: Creative Interpretations - Spanish Fishing Vil

Hi

Here are my version of the image. I correted the horison. Made som sharpening and bluring on the LAB file. Copied the layer, blured it and set to overlay. Then some color corretion and at the end some noise. It was my intention to make it like then sun is about to go down.
