Thanks guys -- the floral print turned out to be relatively easy.  Just went at it like Monet's garden ... lotsa dots!   Smiley

Tried a variety of brushes and a variety of paint color sequences and practiced on some colored paper (shown above) that was similar to the dress color.  A very ragged out old #0 shader ended up making nice shapes ... touch to the paint, tap a few times on paper, then on to the dress.  Did light yellowish-green first, followed by deeper green, pink and white.  And, just like the Monet, if you look TOO close it's just a bunch of crazy little dots ... but looking at the whole, it gives the impression of a detailed floral print.

Cheers,
Dallas
