Bhavana thank you. The bud was drawn from holding a sample in my hand. Makes it very easy to see what I want then.
Judy I think it is about done!
Gerry, thanks for the claps
I have now reached my “More look than put” stage. I am undecided if I should do anymore work on the foreground or leave it as it is. I really don’t want to draw anymore attention to it so I am thinking the less it is worked the better.
I did touch up the two bottom daisies where tone was bugging me between petals. I also added more blue to the shadow on the bottom daisy.
The remainder of the butterfly was completed. I concentrated on light showing through the wings to bring them to life. Without the light they tend to be flat in colour.
The body of the butterfly I scraped the merest touch of pastel to depict hair. This helped to give the body more contour as well.
Mmmmmm….. more look than put!!! Is it finished???
