Columbines again

I am doing columbines again but with some parameters. I told myself no more single blossoms, full front on perspective or blending of colors that are the same hue. I have spent days just getting the pattern right as I can for my skill level!
I decided that I would like it better if my Gutta lines were not white so I drew the pattern onto the silk with dye then covered the dried lines with Gutta.

I usually shade with a darker shade of the same color. I am using red to shade yellow and orange to shade pink. I have been working on this for over 5 hours today and have not to the reached the halfway point. Just in case there is any doubt...I am Loving this!
Happy Easter and God Bless.
