Been hunting lately...

and have some pictures to share with you if you like. Unfortunately they are all outdoors as they won't let you take pics inside of the castle.

Re: Been hunting lately...

Thank you, Skip and Grant.
@ Skip, I really love what you did, both have their own charme, I tend to like the lighter one a little more...
@ Grant, lovely painterly feel, great how you tickled the colors.

Trying to do some experimenting with HpDR idea again without doing the ACE (in fact, sort of doing the opposite) with a vector simplication blend for this watercolor (added dup burn with Opacity adjustment at the end). Of course add the paper texture at the end.

Lyle, this one looks dreamy and surreal, very different

I really like these Topaz plug-ins. They're fun to play with!

Re: Been hunting lately...

Here are two in the same style: Watercolor with outline. The fountain was done with Topaz and the pond was done with Filter Forge
