Re: Big Red Flower

Many very interesting variations.

I used a Gaussian blur on the background, blended a couple layers of Topaz simplify and adjust, and played around until I got something that resembled a watercolor.

Re: Big Red Flower

Great work everyone. I fussed with a variation last night but am not too pleased with the results. Ah, as long as I call it a "learning experience" it's not all bad, right? Wishing a dramatic appearance, I wanted to produce some light effects on the flower. BUT, PS>filter>render>lighting effects was a bomb. No spotlight worked on the black background. Humph...I know there's a solution, exactly what I do not know - yet.

Dan, oltenius, yours was most interesting. I really like the watercolor effect and can see how the shape & dynamics of the brush help to achieve that. But please, if you will, explain to me how the Art History Brush is effective in those beautiful colors? Did you alter the colors first? Then use the AHB? It's really lovely, the effect is fabulous.

Re: Big Red Flower

Veronica, Thanks for the appreciation!
Well, first alter the colours for any photo, then use AHB, often alternate pattern stamp tool and AHB for best results. Place in the top of the layers the original photo or sketch and play with blending mode and opacity. Use USM, Selective color, Color balance...
Hope you understood my strong English! LOL
Best wishes,
Dan
