:smile: I made this one today after having taken a bit of a break from painting. Colours used are gold, white, magenta and yellow... mixed in with quite a huge amount of water! The right wing is just a little bit off because I didn't sketch the butterfly beforehand, but that's all right. :smile:

Hope you like it!

Wow the colours made me pull back a bit and that is a good thing. I love the colours you used very spring like colours with the sun coming back and all. ( that is just what thought occured to me when I first looked at it )


I didn't sketch the butterfly beforehand, but that's all right. :smile: Yep so true when I sketch things out on canvas it very seldom ever stays to the way I sketched it. I do look forward to more of your work :D

It says "Spring!" to me, something I sorely need to soak up! :)

I can picture a bunch of them on embellished fabric or paper items. Don't mind me...it's been a long winter here (record amount of snow I think).

Beautiful colors! Winter will end eventually and you'll get to paint butterflies in real life.

Thank you! :smile: I was aiming for a spring mood indeed, so I am glad I succeeded. It's a pity it's still snowing outside though... was hoping for some more inspiration this week.
