The one four challenge is where you take one picture and over a month each week edit the picture in a different way. At the end of the month you have four different images and four different interpretations of the image. You can read more about the challenge here.
After last weeks obligatory Black and white for the One Four Challenge, I wanted a bit of the change in editing. I decided to go for a sketch and watercolour effect, which I thought this image would lend itself well to.
I duplicated the image to create the sketch lines. I used the glowing edges filter, that I then inverted, desaturated and added noise to get texture. I duplicated the image and applied a watercolor filter to the image and then added a mask and used watercolor brushes on the mask to reveal the colour. This also added texture to the image. I finished off by adding an aged textured paper as the background to round the image off.
I would be interested in what you think of the effect, let me know in the comments below.
