You are lucky, Dron58 aka Vitaly/Piker is a long time member here, you can search as he often gives tips. Here is a tutorial from the master of watercolor himself :-)

Have a look here: http://www.retouchpro.com/forums/pho...utorial-3.html

hope this helps a little further, somewhere there must be links to the supplies ie brushes, watercolor paper texture etc.

Have fun!

Hahaha, thanks, I guess I'm not the right person to guide you. Your work looks wonderful already, what is it you don't like?

Re: help on AHB how to do this ?

well amica to be honest i am still on very flat style. I've got a landscape which i am not able to render it somehow.

The one i did was pretty straight. Now that link you shared on vitaly's tut here was so infromative. I am yet to find out how to make those nice mixing of two brush strokes which gives real watery effect over the stroke.

If you see the attached file the two three colors been merged like water pigmentation. How can we do it ?

Re: help on AHB how to do this ?

I trust that you've downloaded the brushes mentioned in the tut, right. They will do it automatically. Change the size according to wanted detail

Example: AHB Settings: Size 9, Mode:normal,Opacity 30%, Mode:tight medium, area 10 px, tolerance 0%
