There's an abstract watercolor tutorial by Cynthia Powell on the Digital montage Studio blog. (There's a link on my blog list.)
--Cindy, so nice to hear your voice. I didn't hear either the dog or the phone--good job!

Here's the original photo, that I took several years ago at a renaissance faire.
