I tried to make the temple look like it was made of basalt (a dark volcanic rock apparently).
I experimented with a new texturing process:
- Using a textured brush (one of Gimp’s built-in acrylic brushes), I painted onto a separate layer.
- Using the eraser tool on the texture layer, I cut the texture down to fit the shape of the temple.
- I then switched on Lock Alpha Channel for the texture layer and painted light and dark areas with a large brush.
Not sure I like the design of the windows – I was wanting something more gothic.
Anyway I think I’ll leave this one for now and get on with some landscape studies next.
