And this is a fine example of how NOT to overwork a painting! I thought by glazing flower #2 with yellow and flower #3 with light brown, it would set them back accordingly. It kind of does - got carried away with the line work trying to identify the pedals. This is NOT a keeper, but it's a good lesson and I will try it again. I do like the background - it was a little too light so I put down stencil and used sand paper on watercolor pencils to add some butterflies and a bee! Did I mention I am having too much fun doing this? :-)

I think the glazing does work as you intended and the flowers recede into the background....and I don't mind the line work either. It plays off the spider-web effect in the background.
