Thank you everyone for hanging in here with me. I certainly relate to all the other artists trying to get their completed painting in everyday amidst their other demands in life. It has been a challenge for me but I have grown so much and found that I can indeed paint small!
I have enjoyed watching this butterfly in my garden. In reality it appears to be bright yellow and black. It moves its wings so rapidly, it is like watching a hummingbird. The odd thing is that it either does it with it’s top wings or it’s bottom wings. I was sad to see it’s dead body laying on the ground in my carport but excited to be able to study the color and I was so surprised to see blues, grays, and orange on its underside. It was in pretty bad shape but I decided to try to paint from it. This is my first try. I think I would like to do some colored pencil studies also.
