    A new technique for me...

    Hi all, I'd love some feedback on this, I've been using custom brushes in Photoshop and this "watercolour" is the latest result. No funny filters or tricks, just relatively straightforward painting.

    Oh wow. I love it. I never would have pegged it for a P'shop.
    I was once on the receiving end of a critique so savagely nasty, I marched straight out of class to the office and changed my major (sketchbook).

    That's really nice, Jason. Any chance of sharing those brushes?

    I could get a lot of use out of some brushes like that.

    I second Elwell's request- any chance of you sharing?

    Great brush technique, and lovely neutral colors. Good Job.

    Crit? Maybe the hill in the back doesnt feel like its far enough away(sits almost on the same plane as the foreground hill). Maybe a hue change? Make it more blueish?

    EDIT - I now use these tools as photoshop brushes. You can find them here: http://rapidshare.com/files/32092382...hes_Nov_09.zip

    Use the watercoloury set in multiply mode, minimal layers, and light glazed colours.

    ORIGINAL POST -

    Thanks everyone, it's actually a set of tools, rather than just plain brushes. You can hopefully download them from (apologies for the mad URL):

    http://i5xhiq.blu.livefilestore.com/...a.zip?download

    If there's any download issues drop me a note and I'll post the tool setup details here.

    download seems to work fine jason, thanks for the share. and the painting is very unique and looks great. the green patch of hill off into the distance distracted my eyes some. i kind of had to make that up as a crit but great job!

    Thanks all, yeah, I think I might have to sort the hill out - I made it all up as I went along and that big blob of green is interfering with the tree.

    I'd love to see what people do with these tools, let us know!
