Create a watercolour effect painting in Photoshop

I went for a coffee in a little cafe / craft shop the other day and loved the water colour paintings around the walls. Well, my drawing skills are ok but I don’t really paint as such…. so I went out with my camera and took some pictures to see what I could do with them in Photoshop. I came up with the water colour effect below.

I have written up the tutorial and recommended using Glowing Edges / Invert but I think Find Edges without the inversion would work just as well.

I set myself the challenge of getting this written up early so I had time to get through some chores before tonight’s IT Crowd. Wouldn’t have mattered if I hadn’t…. I’d have left everything and just watched it anyway only I get to see it now without feeling bothered by the Undone Things.

And… I received a comment on the last PS tutorial. I didn’t publish the comment but will quote one line from:

“It is incomprehensible to me but the relevance and importance is overwhelming.”

It’s profound nonsense but I love it. Thank you.
