Watercolor

As can be seen from the list of brushes on the left, the Watercolor category contains a huge range of variants, which cover many types of watercolor painting.

The Runny brushes use the traditional wet on wet style and run down the page leaving a highly diffuse picture.

The Dry Camel and Fine Camel give quite a clear clone with the brush stroke visible. The Dry Bristle brush is a good quick brush for a beginner to try. All the examples below use the Clone Color option. Generally Watercolor is a difficult group of brushes to use for cloning photographs, the special characteristics of Watercolor are explained in more detail in Chapter 8.

Leaves in the mist.

Leaves in the Mist was made with the Dry Bristle Watercolor brush, which is a good brush for pictures where the brush texture will enhance the image.

The paper used is Basic paper from the Painter default set.

As you can see from the detail shown in Figure 3.107, the brush strokes are clearly visible and add to the overall texture.

When the clone was completed, the original image was copied and pasted on the top of the clone copy.

The blur filter was applied to the layer and the composite method changed the layer to Screen at 30% opacity.

This gave a luminous quality to the finished picture.
