The Daily Texture for 02/10/2016
Time for something a little different! Today's Daily Texture is a painted "frame" with heavy brush strokes and soft ocean colors. I used this texture with a photo of a blue heron, both as a background and overlay. I also ran some Topaz Impression painting presets on the blue heron layer, in order to make the bird appear more painterly. After merging, I boosted the overall color saturation and sharpness to complete this beach-themed art.
