Abstract Skies II & how to use them

Hi,
ever wondered how to add some painterly clouds and textures to an dull monochrome sky?
Use textures that feature subtle cloud structures!
I made 12 textures, that have clouds in them and I used them in the following images:


Blooming


Dangerous Waters
   
Rural France
    

As you can see in the before images one obviously needs skies with a lot of negative space to fill. So these are either clear blue cloudless skies or skies overcast with indifferent clouds.
Erasing parts of the texture with a soft brush on a layer mask is always a good way to get rid of parts, that you don't want to have a texture on.

Apart from using the MULTIPLY blend mode I also often use the texture in NORMAL mode and create a soft transition between the landscape and the sky by applying a gradient on a layer mask, like I used on Dangerous Waters.

Any questions? Don't hesitate to contact me.



These textures are available on my site here:


You'll get 12 large sized textures for 8,90 €

Or you can head over to my CreativeMarket store and find them here:







I am currently working on cloud and fog/mist brushes. So there is more to come.
Thanks for visiting!
