Here's the full illustration so far. We're going to place a bowl lamp on the …wall next to this door. And to do this, we first need to create …the right shape for the lamp. So, let's Zoom in, and make a new layer. …And we'll move it to the top of the layer stack. …We'll use the elliptical Marquee tool to draw out a perfect circle and that will …form the bottom of the lamp. We want a curve on the top of the lamp …bowl and the best way we can do this is to make a new selection that intersects …with the old one. Now, if we were to hold the Alt key down, …that's Option on a Mac, (UNKNOWN) selection, it would be subtracted from …the old selection. If we were to hold the Shift key, that …would add the new selection to the old one.…
If we hold Shift and Alt or Shift and Option together, we get a new selection …that intersects with the old one. So, we can draw a shape like this, and …when we release the mouse button, the intersection produces this bowl shape. …Let's select a bright color from the background, and fill with that color. …
