Watercolor Painting

I would like to work on creating a great watercolor painting for a lot of my flowers. I'm not having much luck. Have you tried anything that gave good results? My problem is probably too many choices, I'm a sucker for a new Aop, ask Roc!

Wow, thank you, Gene. I so appreciate the tips. I'll be back when I have something.

Gene, I tried the Dreamy watercolors and you were correct! I like this one but I would like it a bit more transparent. Humm...
I will try again.

Ok, ran it through realism first and then dreamy watercolors. Added a bit of black outline and went crazy with the lightening. I'll click submit and then I will be able to better compare the two.

Wutz, thanks for the tip. I was hoping the outline would look like a bit of under-lying pencil sketch. This one has a lot less of the outline. Humm... I'm going to have to google some watercolors. Do you have a favorite?

I like mine as well, but I don't know how much it looks like a watercolor.

I love the following. I found it on the web, not mine at all.

Rachel, of the three Iris images I like #2 (Realism plus DreamyWatercolor) the best. I think the outline works as I've seen a number of watercolours where the sketch underneath is still visible. You might want to create a separate sketch layer and overlay it on the image (a la Vitaly's Tutorial), This way you can better control of how strong or weak it appears.. If I had a small nit with #2, it is that the paper texture looks like a canvas rather than watercolour paper. Also when doing watercolours, try checking natural borders.

"makes you smile" - that's what it's all about, life: making someone you don't know smile and have a laugh..

I've found that the basic Aquarell works nicely on flowers, let it run for about 80 - 140 000 strokes.

I'm doing a lot of testing to find something that works for skin (I'm a photographer, I do weddings and glamour portraits (You know, nudey wife pictures to give to the hubby as a anniversary present). Something that makes the whole naked skin thing look good, without destroying too much detail and introducing weird colour casts.
