Beautiful watercolor effect! You must share your technique. I like the rough edges and the different saturation levels. Nicely done!

Schwartzie,

Absolutely beautiful. Care to share the steps? I love everything from the brush strokes to the texture. Very, very nice.

Thats a Beauty..Thanks for sharing your steps..I've been trying to follow it as a tutorial with one of my bird pic's..Is the texture on your bluejay pic. from photoshop (like sandstone with a fade) or is it a commercial purchase..

Thanks
Jerry

I didnt add the texture instructions in the tutorial as I usually dont use it. In this case it was add a duplicate layer of the finished flattened image, edit, fill, 50grey, add layer mask, filter add texture and overlay

This is so different than the tutorial example. Very nice, truly a painting look.

I tried this technique, don't know if it is really right or not.
Some questions, did flatten, dup then filled with white, layer mask, I used the loaded wet water color flat, may have been the wrong brush ?
Then had to go to orig bg layer to select and do median?
Suggestions ? ?
