Re: Creative Interpretations - Town Houses

I really like this capture Dee Dee. Also like your minimal color watercolor too. Still playing with this new blending technique so I guess I have to call it my current binge. lol

Re: Creative Interpretations - Town Houses

And another version using a brush by Peter over a layer which topaz simplifiy had been used

Swampy i know it must be frustrating for you to have to wait for a mac verison so i have posted the simplified version ( the watercolour preset only ) as well for you not to tease you but thought maybe you could have a mess around with the pst on it

Re: Creative Interpretations - Town Houses

Here I used a action from a fantistic digital artist, Mike Finn. I used his Paint With Texture action. I oversaturated the picture a good deal and ran the action stopping after Version 1 for this effect.

Mike's web site is:
