I guess there is no topic for this lesson.

Here is my butterfly and flower. A friend of mine asked me to paint a butterfly months ago. When I saw this lesson, I wanted to do it to gift her. But leaving feels hard.  :'( I decided to paint it bigger for myself.  :painting: Like 40 X 60 canvas  ::)

I'm impressed!!! Beautiful work.
The moment you find yourself mostly satisfied with a painting and think you'll "just quickly" do this or that, that's the moment to stop completely. Take the painting off your easel and put it aside for at least 24 hours, then reassess whether it really needs that tweak.
