Small Butterfly Series - Red Butterfly

I started another butterfly today.  You can see the other two I will be doing in the first picture.  I don't know what the name of this butterfly is but I love the brilliant red color.  The canvas is 8"x10".  It will go with the blue butterfly I did last week.  

Here is the finished painting.  I still may lighten the red in the upper wings a bit.  I think it may be too dark.
Below is the final version.  I just did a little bit of subtle tweaking.
