This picture is from Caen (my home town in Normandy).

As for the painting :thinking: I must have used some layers of Impressionist + the pattern stamp tool. I hardly ever use the art history brush, I just don't like it as much as the pattern stamp tool (less flexible, I think).

Neal, I bet there will be beautiful pictures for you to take there. And I'm sure you guys could show us some pictures of the place where you live. I bet you too have lots of beautiful old streets/buildings.

This one is from the famous Mont-Saint-Michel. It's a fabulous place and be sure to go and visit it if you ever go to France! It's in Normandy, close to the "border" with Brittany.

Can't pass up the oppertunity to agree with you about Mont St Michel. We spent the night there this past June. I always stop over when in the Normandy area. The picture is a happy memory and I love the color. Rebecca's & Debby's mother.

Hi Wanda,
I'm glad you like the Mont-Saint-Michel too. I just love that place, although I've never slept there (my hometown is only 2 hours away from it). I hope I'll get a chance to go there again on my next trip to France.
Thanks for your comments too, Andrew and Rebecca.

Neal,
For the Mont-Saint-Michel one, there are lots of steps involved: layer adjustments of all kinds, Nik filters + some layers of Poster edges and Impressionist (Oldmaster).
As for the one of the Vaugueux, you're right, there are some LucisArt layers in there.

Thanks Neal. I hadn't really thought about a tutorial as these involved commercial plugins and I try to stick to tutorials that don't require any additional plugin. I'll see what I can come up with...
I'm trying to write a book with tutorials in French as it seems it just doesn't exist in French at all...

Well, you won't have to bother learning French for this one.
The tutorial is in English (as are all the tutorials on my website) and is available on my site at :
Tutorials
Sorry but I can't offer it for free, since I plan on including it in the book I'm working on and it took me hours of work....
It's called Watercolor/pen and ink tutorial and it's the last one on the right.
It doesn't require any additional plugin and here's a picture I made with this new tutorial:

Neal,

This is as close as I manage to get to the picture you liked the best. Let me know if this is worth working on a tutorial...

This tutorial requires Lucisart, Buzz and Nik's filters.
