I managed to finish the Great Mormon yesterday. It was my third butterfly in watercolor. And I have to say there is something special in a painting if an animal is in it. The painting somehow comes to life. Ive been always focused on painting plants but I had a great fun with painting butterflies or the latest cardinal bird. I think I'll add more animals in my paintings.
I was asked to record even a few minutes of how I'm painting this commision soo I took my camera and decided to record how I was painting this butterfly. Here it is. Take your time and relax while watching...
