Practicing for Butterfly Series

Every time I do a black clayboard engraving I tell myself that I will fool around and practice coloring them with ink. But then, after many hours of scratching in a design, I am too chicken to colorize it, worrying that I will just wreck it and all that work will be lost. 

That kind of cowardice is no way to practice!  I need to fail more in order to progress. Oy, but it is hard.  Anyways, here is the start of a new board, which was supposed to be practice but... now I'm feeling that same timidity about inking it.  We shall see.
