The Daily Texture for 02/02/2015
Here's another Daily Texture useful for still life subjects or portraits. This one was designed specifically to have olive green tones in it because the photo I wanted to use it with has an olive green accent piece. Perhaps some of you who have olive green in a photo may find it useful!
I added the beautiful Eurasian Collared Dove to the top of the books, in order to keep the image compatible with the bird theme I'm working on. It took some time and I made several duplicates of the texture layer to get it looking like I wanted. Unfortunately, I accidentally merged and saved the layers without looking at each layer and what I had them set on. I know I used multiply and overlay, at some lower opacities. And I darkened the bottom edge around the books on the table to give shadow there on the bottom right side. I also paid close attention to the book layer under the bird's feet and darkened that, in order to have a realistic shadow under the bird's feet, which would be present if the bird was really sitting on these books. :)
