Creative Interpretations - Spanish Fishing Village

Are you up for a challenge? Can you paint a watercolor? Try to do it using only the filters that come native with your paint program. No 3rd party filters allowed.

In mine, I used Filter>Distort>Displace. The rest was PST, desaturation, and blend modes and my Line art Tute.

Re: Creative Interpretations - Spanish Fishing Vil

Nice challenge Swampy, should be very interesting all the different techniques and interpretations of "watercolour"

This technique is from a tutorial i read, I liked it and made it into a easy to use action, it uses
cut out
dry brush
and median
and a simple sketch layer

Like everything else it wont work on all images, but in using the action it only takes a little time to work out if it will work ! ! !

Oh, my, Palms, that is just fantastic. I notice you've been using cut out a lot lately. It's a filter I seldom use so I'll have to explore it.

Re: Creative Interpretations - Spanish Fishing Vil

Swampy,

It has been a while since I tried one of these:

Added a background with texturizer
Used the Smudge Stick filter on the image
Converted the image layer to Multiply
Applied the Diffuse filter to the image edge
Drop shadow in the background

Frank... another wonderful intrepretation. Thanks for the workflow. I like the simple paintings without all the filters. It is a challenge to turn a photo into a nice piece of art that granny would hang in her house. LOL

Re: Creative Interpretations - Spanish Fishing Vil

Very nice village in Spain!
I liked the artworks from everyone!
I used a crop, usm, dry brush and reduced the opacity of the layer, selective color and other adjustments, texture.

Dan, that is a super crop! Wow. Nice job.

Re: Creative Interpretations - Spanish Fishing Vil

OK Dee Dee; just don't tie my hands again. lol

GIMP's Cubism filter (small tile size means very long processing time on my aging machine; yes, I like to complain. lol), followed by a Hue/Sat adjustment and then applied Clothify Script-fu (it ships with GIMP by default, and you said only use what comes with your editor of choice). If my hands were not so tied, but would have added other cool filters as well as a few third party GIMP preset/filters, but hey; you get what you see since you made the rules. lol
