Watercolor Butterflies

My latest, happy little butterflies.....


This time I tried painting them more wet on wet and I'm really happy with how they turned out.  Watercolors are the perfect medium to paint butterflies!  They let you show the translucence of the wings better than other paints.






The  Blue Morpho Butterfly is my favorite... I guess you now know where the image for my new blog header came from!
