Digital deliciousness step 2

The next step is to bring in the base layer. In this case, I have a library of base textures, and my favorite is a washy loose texture that I had hand-painted and keep as a digital file for layers. I drag and drop the washy file over the drawing, and in new layer I select 'multiply'. This makes it transparent. Using the brush tool i'll stroke a nice painterly edge. I'll also often drag another copy, (multiply later so it's transparent) of the washy layer in and ajust the hue to get different results. It's adding and subtracting.
