I finally decided to create a little window that I could lay over areas of the center so my eyes didn’t go crazy and I’d lose my place.   This enabled me to see only small areas of the reference photo at a time so I could more accurately reproduce all the little flowers.  Although not hyper-realistic, I think it’s looking pretty good so far.  Achieved a little more work on the petals as well.
