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