Made some progress today on the larger butterfly painting by blocking in the color portions of the wings. (Scroll down the page to see the previous stage of the painting.) I did a bit of shading and highlighting which brought the painting into dimension. Nothing has been done to white portions of the canvas. Notice how the smaller whites on the wings stand out even though not painted. I will add shades of white later. Next step is to add the floral background. I will work on the other butterfly tomorrow and possibly finish it, but we did talk about going fishing tomorrow. Your comments are appreciated.
