Dear Elle. You say the sweetest, the nicest things. Thank you so very much. I'm sure you are a lovely person with a great deal of good friends!

From the queen of corn to LA (aka Elle). You rock girl.

So do you Neve (aka Pauline) and Jaykita (Judy).

I sit here and wish I could learn all of your techniques, meet you all face-to-face, and give you all hugs. I'm glad we share this common interest.

Janet (you already know my name)

Sorry for the delayed response Danny, but I was out of town.

I went back through my steps and it looks like I left one out...(I've since corrected it).

After you apply the Water color filter, you need to add a pattern overlay. I selected the cloud pattern. This will help create the "wet edges" look.

As for the Luminosity Mask...paste onto own layer, set to screen then merge layers (make sure not to merge the original image). On the new merged layer is where I used AHB to paint some strokes. I set the brush to the original layer and painted away with different brush sizes; basically experimenting until I liked the look. I found the AHB to bring out some colors and soften the hard lines of the flowers.

Hope this helps!

Couldn't resist a second try at the butterfly.
This one done with watercolor action by ErickN from DPReview (available from Action Central). Removed the texture layer from the action and substituted a WOW canvas pattern adj layer (about 10% opacity). Used a large oil brush.


First post here. Wonderful photo of the butterfly; thanks for providing the 'play toy'.
Used Trimoon's watercolor technique from his Artisitic Expression CD:
First dup bkgnd
added hue/sat adj. layer. sat=~+40
used Trimoon's watercolor tutorial
- added new layer; fill with beige (sp?)
- Steve's watercolor starter art history brush (purity about 20%)
- Steve's watercolor #1 art history brush (purity about 20%)
- added pattern adj layer with WOW watercolor pattern(10% opacity)

I'd like to say thank you to everyone who so generously provide info here. I've learned a lot just by reading.
Ron

Thank YOU, Ron, for the kind words and for the great detail. You picked a lovely pic for your first post. This one deserves the tender, loving care you used.

Glad you jumped in. Hope to see more of your creations in the future.

Hi all!

I'm new here too! *waves* I've been home sick all day, so have literally spent about 8 hours off & on surfing this site--I love it! I have learned so much already, I can't believe it--what a great group!

I am no stranger to PS, but as I normally do 3d work, I mostly use it for sharpening & color correction. I have been doing some different work, mostly landscapes & wanted to make them look "painterly" so did a web search...and here I am!

I used a montage of tips & techniques from the links here on the butterfly...filters: watercolor, sprayed strokes, angled strokes, gausian & smart blurs, etc, along with a tweak in flaming pear's aetherize filter. Unfortunately, I lost track of exactly what I did as I kept trying out different things I was reading about! LOL Next time I'll keep a list as I go so I can post properly.

Anyway, thanks to everyone here who contributes so generously!
Hope to be able to contribute to the group sometime...

-Donna-
