Mist in the trees tutorial

by | Blog, Tutorials

For this misty mountain top landscape,
I used just two flypaper textures,
Raw Linen @ Linear burn setting 46% and opacity at 63%
although I liked it, I didn’t need the texture, so I blurred it with Gaussian blur for a smooth finish.
Necropolis was used in Overlay @ 55%, Opacity 56%
So we come to the 2nd brown version.

I really wanted a fresher look so I went to the top of the page,
image – adjustments – colour balance, with Necropolis-only selected,
and moved the sliders as shown, the Necropolis texture becomes bright green!


Flatten and crop square.
Et voila, a nice fresh but misty/moody landscape!
