I hope you will allow me to 'play' around a bit. I've seen some different texture work by a couple of artists and I have some new textures to play with so I'm experimenting with different blending modes and opacities and more textures on an image. The goal here is to reveal the image through the texture to whatever degree I choose, using selective focus and selective sharpening. This really is about the texture and a more artsy look. When you change the blending modes and opacities you sometimes are surprised with the result - lots of options!
2 textures used here at varying opacities, one using multiply and one hard light.
Feel free to give your feedback on the look. I'll be 'mixing it up' a bit in the days ahead as I play in my sandbox! :)
WELCOME and thanks for visiting!
