Applying the final touches to the portrait
I copy and paste my own grain texture over the artwork and set this to Overlay at seven per cent. Now I’m ready for my final colour adjustments. I boost the reds and yellows in the artwork using the selective Color Adjustment layer. I also use a photo filter to warm the artwork a touch. Finally, I blur my background (Filter>Blur> Gaussian Blur) for an out-of-focus look. And I’m finished – I hope you enjoyed the journey!
