I use textures every day in my illustrations - they are my favourite way to give my work depth and enhance colour.
Below are five gorgeous concrete textures from the paths around my neighbourhood. I took my phone and went for a wander and the streets around my house on the hill didn't disappoint!
Each file is a high resolution jpeg, perfect for graphic design work or digital art. Scroll past the image preview below for a download link for all five textures.
Tips for using textures:
- In Photoshop, embed your texture by clicking File/Place Embedded and then choose your file and click 'place'.
- Clip the texture layer to the part of your design you want to texture by using a clipping mask.
- I like using the blending mode 'Colour Burn' and reducing the opacity to suit the level of texture I want to show. Colour Burn makes the colours really pop.
