Thanks Bhavani,

I think I have made some interesting positive tweaks. I'll have to wait for this northeaster to blow through and then get some decent natural light for another photo.

I worked on the cocoon and the aura. Added a deeper glaze toward the bottom. Then I sprayed all over with a 50/50 mix of water and denatured alcohol. As I watch the piece it is slowly pulling forward a purple layer that I applied right over a coat of black gesso. It is giving it a royal effect. It's really cool and I will take a photo with tomorrow's light and post it before I change anything else.

Other than what I mentioned yesterday, I just highlighted the yellow and blue in the wings.
