Dots and dashes

Today I was out most of the day, but this evening I  began working in an old catalogue for wallpapers whose pages I had been priming prior to using it for painting.

I painted this from a sketch I did a long time ago and didn't have a reference, but most of it came out well.  Just one area where I didn't curve my dashes and it looks a little flat.  I must say, it's amazing how your mind fills in the gaps when you look at a familiar object.  I didn't see my mistake until I was cropping my scan (always the way).

Happy creating
