    Congratulations Cheryl Slechta for your image "Watercolor Harmony" being chosen as the Out of the Box Image of the week ending 12/10/2010!!!

    I thought I'd try something different and created this watercolor image from a color image.
    I wanted a different look than the usual birds and blue water so I used Nik>Silver>Neutral with a vignette, then an old paper filter to tone it. I then used this watercolor texture on Color Blend mode and then Topaz Painting>Venice at a lower opacity. Finally, I used DAP watercolor and slightly masked back in the grebes. I added kanji meaning "harmony" and my chop.
    I guess this was a "through the back door" approach but I liked the final results. (And I love grebes)

    Thanks for looking. Comments and suggestions appreciated
