Excellent technology to create a watercolor effect offers Wdremix. This tutorial uses a little used but very useful and functional tool for architectural paint brushes. Another option is useful for us to create a new image for the photo. But first we give the original photo colors HDR, then impose a watercolor effect, and then apply a layer mask for decorating large watercolor brush strokes. In general, everything is quite simple, but effective.

Step 1.
Choose a suitable photo. For example photos of nature.
