We are enjoying a lovely hot summer here in southern New Zealand, it makes a change from last year when it was often overcast and cool. It was an especially hot day yesterday and the beach was the place to be, like many New Zealand beaches especially on a week day this one was all but deserted. We watched this woman walk through the flock of seagulls towards the sea, I grabbed my camera and took a few shots of her, the sea looked so inviting I was almost ready to join her.
Anyway the texturing, this was as usual fairly simple.
Capability Brown @ Soft Light 52%
Catacomb Frieze @ Overlay 100% desaturated a little to make it less “fruity” using a hue saturation adjustment
Omega @ Soft Light 100%
And it was done!
Capability Brown is from the Autumn Painterly Set, Omega and Catacomb Frieze are from the Spring Painterly Set.
