Adding tex­tures

When paint­ing dig­i­tally I pre­fer to begin from a slightly darker mid-tone, and my paint­ing is a lit­tle light. I could add a flat fill on a Mul­ti­ply layer, but where’s the fun in that? In­stead, I drag a wa­ter­colour tex­ture into my file and set its blend­ing mode to Mul­ti­ply. This dark­ens my val­ues, but also adds a rich­ness to the colour and fur­ther en­hances the sur­face ef­fect.
