“Passion Flower” – Day 4

Here’s how my passion flower looked by the time I went to bed last night. I made good progress with the thread sketching on the main flower, especially the radial filaments, stigmas and anthers at the center. You can see it a bit closer here:

I did some thread work on the petals, but I can see that I need to go back in with darker thread – maybe even some purple-red – to get the shading right. It still looks too flat to me.
