Sarah Vernon at First Night Design is one of my favorite artists. In this post, she shares her technique for achieving the lovely layered effect she gets for her artwork.
The pleasure of creation is infinite and Wings over the World was immensely enjoyable to do.
Using Photoshop, I began with a coastal scene from Unsplash.com, a good site for free images.
I overlaid this with another Unsplash photograph of seagulls, which I set to the ‘Hard Light’ blend mode.
I followed with a texture from 2 Lil’ Owls in ‘Multiply’ mode at 82%.
The next stage was selecting only the seagulls from that photograph and making these into a separate layer to go over the texture. This I put in ‘Multiply’ mode at 61%.
The final touch was a Kim Klassen texture in ‘Colour Burn’ mode.
The resulting image is below. I’m rather fond of it. I hope you are too.
