Abstract Painting Tutorial

Create a copy of this layer and use Gaussian Blur on the top one.

I often use this trick to soften the edges or to give some king of atmosphere effect.

Note that the top layer opacity is near 70-80%.

I will work now to refine the edges of my shape. I will use 2 custom brushes: the dot brush and the Rock brush.

Don't set any settings in brush options.

Here you can see my Custom brushes. You can always
find them in the Internet (davaintart.com for example) or just make them.
