Not really to happy with this, started off with watercolor (background) ended up doing flower with oil, which did not start out to do, experimenting more with wc, so will post it anyway:D

Thanks Pat, yes I do have them but for some reason I can't seem to get them to load, I did get SOS's carpet in tho. . I have been using the default canvases and just uping the roughness and grain size :D
