Butterfly Oil Painting on Panel - Torn

This is one of the paintings that I am working on right now.  It is done on a 12x24" panel in oil.  I was hoping to have it finished today so that I could submit for an upcoming exhibit but you just can't rush art!

I still have lots of work to go but need to let each layer dry before adding more but it is really starting to take shape.  The bottom area of the leaves will be pushed back more, similar to the top right area.  Then of course more definition in the rest of the leaves to give the feel of space and shape.  The orange layers of the butterfly are slowly being built up as well as the black areas on his wings.  The orange is really starting to glow, I love oil!
