Commercial Use OK.
Since I named this new brushstrokes texture "Soaring Eagle", I thought it was only appropriate to pair it with one of my recent eagle photos. Here, I masked away the background from the eagle, leaving just him and the texture underneath. I lightly blended away some of his wing tips and tail to give the illusion he was emerging from this heavily painted texture. After merging the layers, I increased the saturation just a little, as I wanted the bring out more of those yellow/gold brushstrokes as well as the yellow in his beak. I like the way this looks...the abstract, painterly feel paired with the realism of the eagle in flight.
