Welcome to another video where this time we are going to create a realistic watercolour painterly effect. The effect uses Adjustment layers and Live Filters so it’s going to be fully adjustable when saved in layers as an .afphoto. Using this technique you have the choice of either producing a straightforward watercolour or you could try producing a surreal watercolour effect.

The video has chapters making it easier to find the part you need.
