Watercolour effects using Adobe Photoshop

Watercolour effects with Photoshop

Written on .

Firstly, many thanks to all of you who have been in touch to tell me how you've been enjoying this mini-series of lockdown ideas - I've really enjoyed seeing your images and your lovely comments, so thanks for sharing them with me. 

Recently, I've been having some fun creating watercolour effects from a choice of images in my archives courtesy of a recent article from Adobe. So I thought I'd share this article and examples of some of my images as the last of this mini-series of lockdown ideas.

Photoshop certainly requires many hours of practice to become adept at using it but, in this case, you don't need to be too familiar with it as each step is fully explained in Adobe's article online here. I hope you enjoy it - and if you do come up with some lovely artwork I'd love to see them.
