Found this pic of a butterfly online and painted my own.
Here are the process pics. Started by sketching in pencil. Had to fix proportions several times.
Butterfly isn’t done yet but the background needs to be painted before the white edges can be added.
Time to paint the grass green.
Add details to the Butterfly. Color over the background with a black crayon, following the general shape of the Butterfly’s wings. Green crayon over grass. Pearlescent black, white, and blue on butterfly.
Presenting… Resting Butterfly.
