Try, try and try. (In this case 3-3-14)

I agree, it's my mistake.

Do you offset this as well?
thanks!
Yes, I click once, but with offset to right.

Use layer mask (see attach).

Thank you for your comments and questions.

Re: Piker's watercolor emulation tutorial

Hi Vitaly,

I hope I got all the steps in. I did not have the Plug-in for Paper texture so I added a pattern layer.

Following the tutorial this portrait of Nicole Kidman was the result, I ended up with a gray tint with the paper texture, is that normal, or is that avoid with the Plugin.

I need to learn how to leave more white space between the strokes...I will spend more time looking at your examples on FLICKR.....

Really enjoyed the process. Thanks again for sharing this tutorial with us.

PeterI

Re: Piker's watercolor emulation tutorial

Peter, I like your work. I have to retire.
For a white space don't paint layers above 1, only the details

Hi Vitaly,

Thank you for the positive feedback.

Several months ago, I would see you digtal watercolors on Flickr, your work was by far some of the best work I have seen with digital watercolor, so convincing that most people assumed it was done with paper and brush. I was so inspired and determined to understand how you went about building your images, I decided to take an image that you had done and see how I could emulate what you were doing. by trial and a lot of error ;-)

I attached the AHB image that I did (notice the file name).

If imitation is the greatest form a flattery, then I am one of your biggest fans.

Again, I thank you for making your tools and process available here.

Peter

Re: Piker's watercolor emulation tutorial

Peter, this is wonderful.
I think should not imitate me, but outstanding masters of watercolor.
You can develop your own style with the proposed technique .
Photoshop is a wonderful tool for researchers.
I read some books about the real watercolor and think how to do it in Photoshop.
If there are interesting results, share.
A problem shared is a problem halved.

Good luck.

PS. I will prepare a video version of the tutorial today or tomorrow

Re: Piker's watercolor emulation tutorial

Hi Vitaly,

I would totally agree that understanding the work of great watercolorist is the path to creating your own style. Of all the traditional art mediums, watercolor is my favorite, so I am always looking to understand more what make it so appealing. As a photographer working with PS for some time now, I am amazed at the depth of this program, it is a learning process every day and a joy to have such a tool to be able to be so expressive with.

Thanks again, looking forward to the video version.
