The Daily Texture For 01/04/2015
Today's Daily Texture is "Evening in Paris" and features a rainbow of rich colors you would see on a glowing city night. I've used the texture in the examples below. Here's a little tip for these multi-colored textures where you have cool colors on one side and warm colors on the other side: use only 1/2 of the texture for those images which might not look right with the mix of the cool and warm colors. Basically, you have two textures in one here. For example, in Carolina Wrens, I've used the whole texture as is, because it worked well. But in The Elegant Borzoi, I wanted to pair the dog with the warmer shades from the texture, so I only used the "warm side" of the texture on his portrait.
