Well, here we go again! Just finished the third of six. Sure is a lot easier to paint the butterflies than the leaves! The leaves at the bottom are supposed to be faded into the back ground which mine don't seem to fade at all and funny how you notice things in a photo, the artist has the flowers blooming in the center with buds at the tip and just pods at the bottom + the fact that her colors are nothing like what I seem to mix...the pods in her painting are really a light tan.....but you are using Hauser Med. Green with a touch of Avocado......go figure!

Sorry about the quality of the photo, need to get a better camera as the painting isn't fuzzy at all.

Lots of details on your butterfly and lots of layers on the leaves. Not easy but you are doing really well with them. Luvs

Beautiful! So much detail on the butterfly and flowers and the way the colors are blended in the background is very pretty and subtle. Great job!
