Tracing Butterflies +Watercolor

Ever watch Butterflies, how they flutter from flower to flower? Sometimes I watch them with the sun. I too should flutter more often. Flutter from idea to idea. Flutter from one negative thought to a peaceful one. Flutter from place to place. My mind often does.

This butterfly still needs antenna and a few spots on the body of the Butterfly. The right side was painted first. The tracing and tutorial called for black ink but I didn’t want the exact pattern and blue seemed like the way to go. My confidence was good. Then it got lost. The left side looks a lot thicker and a few of the lines are a bit of a mess.

What’s the real difference between the right and the left wing? In the right wing I was fluttering in the process. Good place to be.

FLUTTER IN THE pROCESS

Enough about the Butterfly. I will paint another layer and see how I can make this work. It already has because I did write this post. This week I have a few more flowers to paint. I want to do a culture inspired project.
