No, I'm afraid that was about it. Used to live near a Swedish family and learned a few phrases. Just about enough to get myself in trouble.

Thanks for your nice comments again.

I went with the whole Swedish part and tried to highlight that.

Palms...Great rendition...I love the colors...her fave color is pink too...the reflection in the sunglasses is fun ....Good to see you are on top form after going to work!!!

Goose...well she certainly has changed...a very imaginative picture...

Steve....I know quite a lot of Swedish now...but its not quite correct with my Yorkshire accent!!! English is widely spoken here i am happy to say...

Thanks...before getting started I did some tweaking to bring out the subject more. I then used Virtual Painter and played around with layers & blend modes.

Never remember all my steps because I tweak...probably too much...when I have the rendering and saturation the way I want it.

I like the way you mirrored the subject and brought out highlights. Nice over-all effect, very eye-catching.

Very unique and creative, Lyle. Well done...

I was inspired by Steve's great colors. The primary effects I used were my #djroil24 Impressionist preset and Alcar's variation of it and Photoshop's Dry Brush filter applied to different layers and combined using layer masks. I boosted the saturation a lot, too.

Thanks for sharing your pic, Patricia.
