You're welcome

Hi Joe:

It was nice of you to add some detail about your pic. Someone sent it to me in e-mail sometime ago and attributed it to you, and I thought it would be a worthy one for folks here to arty-ize. Thanks for offering your other pics.

~Danny~

Hey, this turned out pretty neat, too.

Speaking of "try, try, try"... You have inspired me once again...
* After downloading your lovely interpretation, did a Select > All, Edit > Create pattern (the WOW technique)
* Created a new layer and filled it with white to serve as a background
* Created a new layer onto which I tried various Wow watercolor pattern stamp brush presets to get an overlapping brushstroke effect that characterizes some watercolor styles.
* Duplicated the original BG and copied it to the top of the layer stack and added a Hide All layer mask.
* Restored a little detail by airbrushing white on the layer mask.
* Added Levels and Hue/Saturation adjustment layers to fine tune contrast and saturation.
* Flattened and added a little Unsharp Mask to bring out some brushstroke characteristics.

In this case I believe I obliterated too much detail with my not-so-consistent Wow brushstrokes. One with better brush control and more patience than me would get better results. But I liked the general direction.

Experimenting can be so educational. This is why when I'm in "try it" mode I try to keep track of what I'm doing just in case it "comes out good"!

Hi Danny, I think your watercolor is so much better than mine! Lovely glowing colors, a typical watercolor effect! Keep up the good work!

Lovely interpretations, all. I ran PSP8 brush strokes emboss, then did a lot of sharpening to bring out paint texture.

This was done with byro's pencil sketch found here
Thank you Roland. As suggested by you, I played around with the layers and had a lot of fun!! As you can see, i colorized it using hue-sat adjustment.
