So here is a second attempt with similar colors. I didn't do any blending of colors on the bottom of the fly like I did on the first attempt though (Yellow in the rear fading to orange in the front). That adds a lot time, and a lot of mess.
I do feel that I did a much better job with shaping the collar this time though, as I took plenty of time when I got to that point. Should be fun to see the progression of my work over the next few months.
