This will be the one and only white butterfly in my #100daysofbritishfloraandfauna 🦋 It was a bit tricky but some black watercolour pencils saved the day! When it comes to painting I much prefer the butterflies that are lovely orange and brown colours
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?
I had to dig out my white acrylic gouache for painting no.26. It turns out painting a white butterfly is hard! I do love the orange tips on the wings. It makes them easy to spot in the wild. ⠀
Painting no. 25 of #100daysofbritishfloraandfauna. I’m a quarter of the way there which is petty good for me. I usually duck out about day 10 of these challenges I set my self because I have the attention of a goldfish! The next few days are going to be all about British butterflies and florals 🦋🌱🌸 Anyone got a favourite Uk butterfly I should paint?
