More Details and the First Color Correction

The next step was to get a bit more texture on the wall. I used my customized shapes to do this and erased any unnecessary parts. Using customized shapes or simply normal shapes automatically creates a new layer, which will give you the option to play with the layer's opacity setting or just erase certain areas without affecting the background. Shapes can be made from most images. Just convert the image to a black and white image (not grayscale), select the black areas to make a clipping path and add it to your shapes (main menu, below brushes). On top of that I added the first details to the door (Fig.06).

More Details and Textures

My next step was to create a new layer for more color variations. This layer was set to Soft Light, which is a pretty easy and comfortable way to adjust and add colors. Depending on your specific needs, you can paint in the color with some brush strokes or using a soft gradient. I mostly used purple or blue tones for the additional color. For the structure on the wall I used a texture I shot quite a while ago. It is pretty useful to collect your own texture references. Just go out with a camera and shoot whatever you want, it's really helpful (Fig.07).
