Butterfly Girl

Next in the Kokeshi series. Again,two pics to show progression; again, about 90 percent finished:




I'm on the fence: Should I add more detail to the butterfly? I also have, penciled in, some hair ornaments for the girl, but now I think they might be too much detail on what's supposed to be a simple shape.

I really like the fading green in the leaves of grass on her skirt.

For those wondering: I do intend to sell these as originals, but mostly they're intended as a postcard series.

How cute! I don't think the butterfly needs any more detail. The shape itself works well!

Thanks! That's the stuff I need to hear.
