The Daily Texture for 02/01/2016
Today's Daily Texture is filled with neutral browns, and a splash of white along the bottom. I paired this texture with a photo I had of our of the eagles standing in a water puddle in the grass. First, I used the texture as a background, and then as a soft light layer on top set to 50% opacity. I then merged the layers and ran the image through some presets in Topaz Impression, giving the work a slight painterly look.
