Insect Update

I'm working on the Virgin Tiger Moth. I have completed the head capsule and outlined the dark pattern on the thorax and abdominal segments. The number of dark markings varies from photo to photo so I did worry about an exact number. The solid red area follows the lines of the thorax and abdomen which will blend into the wings. The blue(ish) guidelines roughly determine the lower set of wings, for now. I will outline the dark spots on the wings and fill the rest with red. It's a bulky, heavy project, so I will be alternating it with smaller, portable knitting.
