So I'm at stage 5 now I guess if you're counting. I so glad to almost be done the golden areas. Sometimes my eyes can't see the forest for the trees anymore when I've been working on one color for awhile. Moving on to the lower background and deep rust areas of the Iris now laying in a randomish color map to get me started. I think it's moving along ok but not totally committed to the background yet.
I love it Terry!
That is absolutely magnificent!
Thank you Pat, Susan and Barbara.
