The Daily Texture for 08/15/2015
A Spot of Blue
After working with so much intense color this past week, I felt a need to come down to earth with something a bit softer. This texture is full of neutral colors and has just a touch of blue in the center. I used this texture with the blue heron photo to turn him into a work of art. He had a busy background, which is now hidden by texture. I also placed some duplicate layers of the texture on top in different layer modes and opacities to get the depth and lighting the way I wanted. And finally, I darkened the bottom edge of the merged image just to make him a bit more grounded.
