We live in a remarkable time. The internet gives us immediate access to nearly unlimited knowledge and inspiration with the tap of a few keys. I regularly find myself scouring the sites of great artists and photographers seeking the next spark. On a recent search, I stumbled across a mesmerizing image created by Leslie Nicole of French Kiss Collections that appeared to be part watercolor painting and part pencil sketch. After reading her blog posts about the effect, I set out to reproduce it. In today’s Photoshop Workbench tutorial, I’d like to share what I discovered with you.
