      There is a bit of a white outline around the Blue Jay, but other than that it looks GREAT! Are you using a technique from here or one you developed?

        I purposely put the white line around the bird although some was already in the photo. Its pretty much my own technique that Danny has labeled Sarahs watercolors. I can never find it to link to. I use a 1 click wow paper texture for this one.

        Basic Photoshop technique is to enhance photo if needed.

        Use the smart blur on new layer

        may or may not use the noise median on another layer. Sometimes i end up with several layers and blend modes

        Then make a layer, fill with white, add mask and paint in with watercolor brush set at various opacity and sizes

        If needed add painted strokes or blur of smudge strokes

            In November, senior member Jaykita gave us a very persuasive watercolor method, and included two Impressionist watercolor brushes of his own design. I'm sorry I don't have the message number in my notes, but the post is dated 11-17-2004. J's technique really works very well indeed, but I have a question...

            Here's the steps for the new watercolor technique I've been experimenting with lately (and created an action for here)

            Tutorial (book): Watercolor, Photoshop 7 Wow method
            by DannyRaphael
            Until now it was my opinion that using Photoshop to render a decent watercolor look wasn't possible. I humbly eat my words.

            A good friend, Kent Christiansen, discovered and told me about the "Wow" watercolor technique. These can be found in a number of books, including:...
