Trio of Butterflies on a Silk Scarf - in progress

Today, I worked a bit on a new painting featuring three butterflies on a colorful silk scarf.  This afternoon, I focused on the color gradations on the bottom butterfly.  I also did a few adjustments to the colors of the scarf.  

Next time I work on the painting, I will probably start adding many of the beautiful blue specks of color that show up against the black wings on the bottom butterfly, and refining some of the edges.  I haven't begun to really tackle the butterfly in the top right, and the top left butterfly has a ways to go.  These middle stretches of the painting, it can be an exercise in self-discipline!
