Butterfly with Tracing Paper

This Butterfly would make a great ceramic piece for the garden. I painted tracing paper with blue paint. Days later I looked at the blue sheet and thought Butterfly. The Butterfly was there. All I needed to do was cut out the rest of the paper. The pattern isn’t exactly symmetrical but it works. I’m going to scan this in for better color.

I did a quick litle experiment by adding drops of paint onto a sheet and then folding to blend. This made amazing texture. I’ll do that in another post. A Christmans posr?

Notes:

Alternative paper: copy paper, tissue paper or tracing paper. Use acrylic paint too. Drawing patterns with a white crayon or any color first then painting over it with watercolor would be fun too.
