I did this a while ago. I was experimenting with the texture tools to try and mimic watercolour with a textured paper effect. It likely doesn't belong on the advanced board, but I hope it gives some of you some ideas.

Before I read your comment I was already thinking "This really looks like watercolour on paper." I've tried and failed...it's not an easy thing to do convincingly. I like your peach and green sunset. I saw one very much like that whilst driving down the old Highway 1 near Big Sur.

hmmm..I missed this! wow, you really did do a great job recreating watercolor. It's lovely, like a cove of a larger lake. Quite familiar looking! :)

Thank you, all. I've never really tried using watercolour to paint with and to be honest, it never really appealed to me. Lately, however, Ive gained an interest in it and have been studying various techniques on the web. I hope to give it a try in the near future. I made this scene up but there are many places like this in the area where I live. I suppose it's time I start taking advantage of it. It'd be a good excuse to just sit by a lake, anyway.

Have you been taking advantage of it yet? :)
