This painting is turning out to be very slow going. I had hoped to have a lot more progress before now but working so large it's hard to see the big picture when working on a patchwork of shapes close up. Once the background is finished it will go faster. I was going to start on the center of the flower but decided that I need to mask some tiny lines to protect them before I go farther. I'll have to wait for the fresh paint to dry before I apply it.
