A new texture! This is an acrylic texture I made, with tones of sky and sea in mind. It's been a while since I worked with acrylic paint, and I forgot how fast it dries! It was a departure from the watercolors I've been using lately, but I am glad to get back to using them.
Here's So Blue used as a texture on an edited photo. I really liked the way it came out, making the sky much more painterly than it was before. I added the texture so blue as a soft light layer and adjusted so it wouldn't overwhelm the picture with the short strokes. I think it adds a great deal to the photo, the obvious brush strokes making it more visually interesting. Feel free to use with your photos and share the results.
