My initial thought was, Funny, I don't remember finishing that.
That's because you didn't, Dean!
As I went though my art-related things, I found the pencil drawing carefully tucked away...still waiting to be painted.
I totally forgot about it!
So I decided to make a dent in it this weekend. Here it is:
In this step I laid down the skin tones and blocked in the shadow areas.
Now all that's left is to strengthen the darks, color the butterflies, and add any last details.
I'm no longer sure if the original intention for this painting will remain but I do know I want it finished...SOON!
