Re: Avignon


Here's a stab at an interpretation (variants abound ad infinitum).

I'm just working in PS. The "watercolor" filter in PS is a bit too heavy handed for me, so this is a combination of motion blur @ the water (masked/blended), minimum sponge & sandstone texture overall and some gradient blending of the two, along with a bump in contrast afterwards.

Definitely an S&P to taste kinda thing that only you'll be able to decide where you take it. Hopefully, you can see some of the various attributes. I tried to remain somewhat subtle, yet also enough to make it visible how the character changes. This rendering is probably a bit of an oil / watercolor blend, due to the contrast boost, whereas a lesser contrast would be more pastel/watercolor-ish.

Definitely in the "making" vs. "taking" pictures territory ... i.e. you can make it what you want, to convey your message to your viewer.
