So eventually I did a course on painting with watercolours and it taught me a lot. Plus I have Rebelle, some software that mimics w/c about as realistically as you can get. But you still need to THINK like a painter, and I don’t.
Yesterday, while trying to solve another problem, I came across a video that showed you how to use the Mixer brush to give you a more water colour effect.
So today I decided to give it a go. I like the sketched out style so I did a sketch using Akvis Sketch – it has much more control and level of detail than Find Edges has, but Find Edges is free and included in PS 🙂
Then many layers of colour were dabbed down, brushed about and mucked around with.
Its a first proper experiment so made all kinds of mistakes but I still like how it came out and understand better how it can work.
The sketch appears twice, once as a base so I knew where my lines were, and then blended softly on top with Multiply to finish it off.
Should I keep going with working on this style? Think its got potential?
