Painting no. 28 of #100daysofbritishfloraandfauna is the Common Blue. It’s a quick and messy gouache painting instead of lots of watercolour washes. I couldn’t decide what shade of blue to use so I just used them all! ⠀
Painting no 27 is Painted Lady. I’m having a dilemma with this one. This butterfly is a British bug but only because it migrates from Morocco in the summer. So does it belong in my collection of #100daysofbritishfloraandfauna? Or does it belong in the non native creatures like geese or grey squirrels that I’m not going to include?
