Dahlia Delight Floral Art

Posted on June 04, 2018 by Leslie Nicole | 0 Comments

I used a painterly texture from the new Virtuoso Painterly collection as the background to this floral design.

The floral motifs were photographs of dahlias from my garden that I processed with the Photoshop filters, Snap Art by AlienSkin (color) and Simplify by *Topaz Labs (line art).

The Background

The background is the texture, Finesse, from the Virtuoso Painterly Texture Collection.

It's always interesting how a background can change everything. I have an early design version with these motifs using a watery acrylic painting I did. While I like that version, when I finished this texture I realized how great it would work. I reworked the motif placement a little, but mostly, the background both blends with the floral and makes it pop.

The final piece works great as a fresh, vibrant pop of color on canvas.

I've also mocked it up on a cushion and used the texture as wallpaper! (Little note - Our Terms of Use does not allow the texture to be used as is for product development. It must be incorporated into a new design such as the floral design.)

I look forward to seeing what you come up with using the Finesse Texture!
