August Break #9 & #10 ~ A two-day affair
…a taste of Photoshop and a splash of red.
The very creative Alexa at Trimming the Sails highlighted a technique to add watercolor characteristics and texture to a photograph. After viewing the video tutorial, it seemed like the perfect project for August Break—fun, fairly easy, and nice results.
It took a bit of experimentation to find a suitable image, but this red rose, found in front of a vintage window frame, looked like it might be a good candidate.
Various filters and brushes are applied to duplicate copies of the original image, a vibrance adjustment is applied to a composite layer, and a watercolor paper texture is added via another filter.
I’m definitely going to try this again!
