the wee beads of oil are sitting nicely love the colour good one ....yesterdays abstract had a fair bit of swirl in it the process wasa real mixture of filters firstly i used the swirl tool and took the centre of the twirl up towards the top left of the shot i then mirrored it moving the centre of the mirroring down to bottom right axis this gave me the nice wee olipticals then added an orton filter to change the white to greyish and added the wee touch of brown the orton filter then was then blurred by 10% lastly i added water droplets and used an increased size of droplet end result as posted.

I reckon you have nailed it with this one Kate - looks like highly magnified images you see when they pop tubes somewhere in the body and you see cells and the like gathering and moving hither and thither ... it is fantastic, well done ... Carol Grin

In the last few renderings your colours are amazing and your effects with
oil and water are stunning. Keep up the good work. WesternRed.
