MicroVisions No 3

(click image for larger version)

I tried to take a few more photos for this piece to detail the steps. I like to keep a record of the steps of my pieces. I hate doing something in a painting that turns out amazing and then going to try and recreate the effect in a later piece only to find that I have no idea how I did it before.
So I often take notes in the steps to help capture it.  

In this piece, you will notice a lot of reworking, specifically in the color changes from the 3rd to last and the 2nd to last pieces.  A glaze kind of got away from me there, and the image changed pretty drastically. (Now, where's the control+z button on this canvas thing again?) 
In the end I am still pleased with how it turned out, but now I know what medium not to use when glazing in the future...
