Faux Watercolor

What I like most about this photo that I found on Unsplash is the fog above the trees. I was curious to see how the watercolor effect would turn out.

After applying all the filters, texture and brush effects, here's the final image I created (click to view the larger image). I tried to let a little bit more of the paper texture shine through at the top.


Thanks for the fun class Jamie! I'd never worked with smart filters before (I mostly use clipping masks and adjustment layers) but I definitely plan to make them a part of my work flow.
