It’s Done! OK, nearly. Is artwork ever quite finished?

Added a bit more detail and cleanup of the background, and added some detail to the flower itself with the stamen and veining. Quite happy with the end result, (end result? well, maybe after I touch up that one shadow here…)

Anyway, for comparison, here is the image of it I posted just a couple days ago.

These images are taken pretty close up and you can see the underlying paper texture but a few steps back appear nice and smooth.

Resulting picture is roughly 9×11…with a bit of matting it should fit nicely in a frame.

Thanks for following along! More to come…
