Flora -- the images are visible. I'll have to wait till later to read your tutorial, but it looks like it is all intact and ready for us to enjoy!

Hi Flora.

Thanks for another great tutorial.

Because I’m not much of a painter I’ve devised a method to use in conjunction with yours using the gradient tool,

For example. To create a highlight.
Create a new blank layer – Bend mode Overlay
Set foreground colour to white
Now draw a foreground to transparent radial gradient onto the blank layer where you want a highlight and then reduce the layer opacity to 5-20%
Using foreground to transparent you can add several radial gradients of various sizes and positions to one layer. And you can build up the effect using several layers.

For a shadow just change the foreground colour to black
The same method can be used on the lighten and darken layers, And a layer mask can always be added if needed.

It’s a great way to make the blends more natural and better still it cuts down on the painting.

Ken
