Light source that’s off the can­vas

If there’s a trick that helps me achieve the look I want in paint­ings, this is it. It’s also one of my favourite steps. I cre­ate a new Over­lay layer be­hind my fore­ground el­e­ments. Us­ing a red-orange at 50 per cent sat­u­ra­tion and a Soft Round brush, I add a pri­mary light source orig­i­nat­ing off-can­vas. I use a layer mask to hide parts that would be blocked by leaves or branches.
