A view of Sydney Harbour as seen from Taronga Zoo. This is a digital watercolour I created in Photoshop.

I love the watercolour effect, looks amazing.
Thank you! I scanned in real watercolour paper to get the texture right. I simplified the details of my photo, accentuating the edges to imitate the darker line you get when the watercolours bleed together when overlapping. I filled a new layer with the paper texture and experimented with layer blending modes like colour burn until I got the result I was looking for. It takes a lot longer than using effects filters, but I think the results are more realistic.
Definitely! Great job!
What a deligthful image! Thanks for the details Joshua on the clever way you made this look so much like a watercolour. Stunning stuff!
Very realistic painterly effect.
Very nicely done!
