The Daily Texture for 12/05/2015
Today's Daily Texture is a very bold, colorful and abstract one, comprised of bright colors such as yellow, turquoise blue, lime green, purple and pink. It cries out for Spring and Easter subjects. It made a perfect compliment to this delightful image of one of our migrating Spring birds, the gorgeous Cedar Waxwing.
Someone asked me the other day, "How do you choose a texture to use with a picture?" My answer to that is I usually choose a texture based on color first. I try to choose a texture which will blend well with a color in the background -- if I'm going to leave the background in the final image -- or I choose it based on a color in the subject if I don't plan on the leaving the background in place.
In Song of the Waxwing, I decided to use this texture with the bird based on the splash of bright yellow color present in the birds feathers. I knew I was going to wipe out the background, because it was too busy and I wanted the focus on the sweet little songbird. And I think this texture was a perfect choice!
