    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.

    This is amazing. The watercolour really adds to the feel of the image for me and the mixture of colours is great.
