I'm still working on replicating the perfect floral water color. I like this but I am going to add some of Vitaly's watercolor texture and take it to the next level.
Be right back.

I just now realized this thread contains a wealth of information and some beautiful (way to go, Rachel) paintings. I just posted a link to some high-res watercolor textures I found which might be of use to others in the Tips & Tricks thread. But here it is again: http://sadmonkeydesign-res.deviantart.com/gallery/

Taa Daa! Thank you, Mary, for your sugestion. And the textures. I wonder if the new dap pro will render watercolor images differently? Hummm......

Rachel, I love the new thread title!

I'm looking forward to trying the new DAP on watercolors myself. That seems to be the style that I gravitate to the most. I've been working on some new AOPs but now I will wait to finalize them. Here's one experiment that I layered with one of the watercolor textures based on Vitaly's tutorial and tips in this thread and the links I posted under Tips & Tricks. I converted the downloaded texture to B&W and softened the contrast a bit, used an overlay blend and adjusted the opacity. I've actually sold quite a few of my watercolor attempts and had a couple that I donated to charity auctions go for $200 each. I'm working now on a website to post them for sale.

@Rachel: You've been making some glorious watercolour images. You go, Girl!

@Mary: A new AOP called MWwctemp?? (Tapping foot) And one might find this where???!!? <Smile>

One should always remember that there will be many out there who will always use the old DAP, either because they won't or can't upgrade to the 64 bit version.

I thought of that Gene, and I also thought that I might release a new "Funky" series AOP or two for the "original" DAP after the new version comes out so that those who can't/won't upgrade will have something new to play with also. Still fine-tuning a couple of them. Be patient (like I am having to be because Oscar won't let me play with 64-bit DAP until he fixes a few bugs) :( . Note: the lighthouse photo for the painting I posted was taken in the Cordroy Valley in Newfoundland last summer.

SmugMug looks pretty promising for selling work direct. It may be easier and a lot faster than developing one's own website to sell through.
