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!
