Today's Daily Texture is a combination of rich amethyst and golds with a few added brushstrokes to make things more interesting. I love it when my original photo has a solid background, as this hawk did with the blue sky he had behind him. When the background is solid color, I don't have to do any masking if the texture will work well in one of the layer modes. For this image, I placed the texture layer on top of the bird photo and set it to hard light at 100%. Then I masked a small bit of that layer off the bird's back and face, as this layer mode made those areas too dark. I then duplicated the texture layer and set it to soft light at about 33% to complete the image.
