My posting on February 9th talks about my plan. I worked on the piece till I got about 1/4 done. I did not like the way things were working. I wanted the butterflies to have more detail and in such a small space (8"X8") it was tough going so, I decided to start over! Hard choice when you have hours invested in a piece.
I would only be able to work for a little less than an hour at a time and then take a break. My eyes would start to get fatigued from trying to figure out what was what on all those butterfly body parts.
Perseverance prevailed and I am quite happy with the final piece.
