Over­lay some soft light­ing

ImagineFX - - In Depth Plein Air Painting -

I try to paint “flat” un­til I’m happy with the paint­ing’s con­struc­tion and ren­der­ing. Now, us­ing a soft Round brush, I paint ar­eas of tinted light and shadow on an Over­lay layer to quickly sug­gest dif­fuse and bounce light­ing. I also add Color Dodge lay­ers to in­ten­sify ar­eas of di­rect light, and fi­nally a Screen (or Ad­di­tive) layer to se­lec­tively bloom out some of the bright­est spots.
