Pastel Watercolor Sketch...

I have been playing around with the brushes in Photoshop 7. I did a sketch, then used the history brush (watercolor) and painted in the sketch. This is something new for me. Comments please!!!

I like the general direction (overall softness, well defined lines).

I'd be inclined to give the color tones a little more emphasis... perhaps by duplicating the original background, dragging to the top of the stack & setting blend to Color or Hard Light & then adjusting opacity...or perhaps with a Hue/Sat adjustment layer and bump up the saturation a bit.

Don't mind my rambling. Thoughts off the top of my (flat) head!

Danny,

I am posting 2 adjusted images. I am glad you suggested a color boost. It is definitely an improvement. Only I can't decide which is better. What do you think?

Nice, Creativo. I like that. Buzz is one of my favorite filters.

Lynda,
I like the one with the most color the best. In fact, I really, really like it!

Thanks, Jeanie. That is the one I decided I liked the best, too. In fact I printed it to send to my niece, Sarah.

most color

I like the one with the most color and also the buzz one, they have a sort of "muddy" color look to me, maybe that is what you wanted but I wonder what it would look like with clearer colors.
Very nice work.

Platscha,

I tried it with clearer colors and it looked good, but it was not what I was looking for in this painting effect. I was trying to get a softer watercolor look to the sketch. Something I could create without using a filter. It started out as a learning experience and turned out to be something I really liked.
