Knowing When To Stop

Is it finished yet?  No.   Knowing when to stop, knowing when I've done everything I can to get my idea across in a painting without going overboard - can be a real problem for me.  I know it needs a little more contrast ...

but after years of creating finely detailed ink drawings like "Sunflower Forest" shown below,

sometimes it's hard to put the brakes on and keep myself from filling in all the negative space.

Come back later to see what happens with this dreamy little dragonfly.
